Cadet Honor Code

Integrity First, Service Before Self, Excellence in All We Do

Core Values

Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more. You should never wish to do less.

Gen Robert E. Lee

The American people rightly look to their military leaders to be not only skilled in the technical aspects of the profession of arms, but to be men of integrity

Gen Joseph L. Collins

Leadership is intangible; therefore no weapon ever designed can replace it.

Gen Omar Bradley

If our air forces are never used, they have achieved their finest goal.

Gen Nathan Twining

If I didn't have air supremacy, I wouldn't be here

Gen Dwight D Eisenhower

In every battle, there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten; then he who continues the attack wins

Gen Ulysses S. Grant

The discipline which makes the soldier of a free country reliable in battle is not to be gained by harsh or tyrannical treatment. On the contrary, such treatment is far more likely to destroy them than to make an army. It is possible to impart instructions and give commands in such a manner and in such a tone of voice as to inspire in the soldier no feeling, but an intense desire to obey, while the opposite manner and tone of voice cannot fail to excite strong resentment and a desire to disobey. The one mode or the other of dealing with subordinates springs from the corresponding spirit in the breast of the commander. He who feels the respect which is due to others cannot fail to inspire in them respect for himself while he who feels, and hence manifests, disrespect towards others, especially his subordinates, cannot fail to inspire hatred against himself

Maj Gen John M. Schofield

Victory smiles upon those who anticipate the changes in the character of war, not upon those who wait to adapt themselves after the changes occur

Air Marshall Guilio Douhet

War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill

Integrity is the fundamental premise for military service in a free society. Without integrity, the moral pillars of our military strength, public trust, and self-respect are lost

Gen Charles A. Gabriel

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who servers beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

Father Denis Edward O'Brien

War, once declared, must be waged offensively, aggressively. The enemy must not be fended off; but smitten down. You may then spare him every exaction, relinquish every gain, but 'til then he must be struck incessantly and remorselessly

Alfred Thayer Mahan

I don't mind being called tough, because in this racket, it's the tough guys who lead the survivors

Gen Curtis E. Lemay
