The Number One Thing A Soldier Must Believe In To Enter Battle

In a July 29, 1991 issue of U.S. News and World Report they shared what they describe as “The Soldier’s First Article of Faith“.

It is the number one thing that soldiers must believe in when they enter into combat…

William Tecumseh Sherman quote

“The soldier’s first article of faith is summed up nowhere more eloquently than in an 1865 letter from William Tecumseh Sherman to U.S. Grant: ‘I knew wherever I was that you thought of me, and if I got in a tight place you would come–if alive.’

“This is the unwritten, unspoken but unbreakable contract of the battlefield: You will leave no one, dead or alive, in the hands of the enemy.”
