-- Sun Tzu

As an Ordnance soldier, I fully understand my duty to perform under adverse conditions and I will continually strive to perfect my craft. I will remain flexible so that I can meet any emergency. In my conduct, I will abide by the soldier's code. In my support mission in the field, I will always be tactically and technically proficient. As an Ordnance soldier, I have no greater task.
