Watch and Share: A Creed for a Comrade

I am an airman, sailor, soldier, Marine, Coast Guardsman. I am a mentor, comrade, friend, loved one...

The “A Creed for a Comrade” video demonstrates that we all have an important role to play in providing support to those who need help.

I have answered my nation’s call. I will always place the mission first. I will always look out for the well-being of my fellow warriors...

It takes courage to address the psychological health concerns that may be affecting you or a fellow warrior. View video profiles of servicemembers who courageously sought help.

  • Excellent, profound, and right on target. No matter what your mission, profession, or speaks to all of us the most important message of all, not one service member, soldier, seaman, marine, coast guard, airmen or guardsmen--or women--should ever feel left behind--and it is all of our jobs to make it so.
  • It is a message that speaks to heart and responsibility of any person, military and not, and pose a great problem of interest of world society. Claudio

If you receive a security warning it is due to our use of a certificate issued by the Defense Department certificate authority.  It is a valid certificate, but it's not distributed by commercial vendors when you download their browser.

You can accept the certificate by selecting the "Continue to this website (not recommended)" option in Internet Explorer.

If that selection is an uncomfortable option, you can follow instructions under "Resolving the Issue (The More-Permanent Way)" here: to verify that the certificate is a valid DoD-signed certificate.
