The Cadet Tradition

I AM A CONCORDIAN: I am a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ and follow the example of His love, service, and humility. I am reverent and sincere in my worship of God and take time to do it. I am proud of my name and family and will do nothing to dishonor them. I am an American and not ashamed to show it. I am friendly to my schoolmates and respectful to my teachers and other adults. I know the meaning of effort and want to learn. I am honest and truthful and know the value of a good reputation. I care for school property and see that others do, too. I am concerned about those less fortunate or gifted than myself and seek to help them. I set high standards for myself and will not compromise them. I am not carried along by the crowd, but I know how to work with and for the group. I respect our opponents and encourage good sportsmanship. I AM A CONCORDIAN.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I pledge allegiance to the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ and to the faith for which it stands, one Savior, God’s Son eternal, with mercy and grace for all.

Concordia High, thy praises forever we’ll sing. 
In loud acclaim thy glory our voices ‘ere shall ring. 
Thy sons and daughters loyal, undaunted, strong and true. 
Fight on to victory. Lutheran High, we’re all for you!

I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet. I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of Cadets. I am loyal and patriotic. I am the future of the United States of America. I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds. I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism. I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body. I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life. May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.
I do solemnly promise, in the presence of God and these witnesses, to uphold the rules of the JROTC and the rules and policies of my school, to discharge my duties as an officer in an honest and competent manner and to be a model of Christ to all I meet. I further promise to take responsibility for the cadets placed in my care, and to look out for their welfare at all times. I will carry out the orders of the officers over me, and constantly strive to uphold the reputation and image of my school, the Cadet Corps, and Christ in the performance of my duties. So help me God.
