United States Military Academy "Duty, Honor, Country"
Dwight D. Eisenhower Class of 1915
"The Honor System as a feature of West Point seems to grow in importance with a graduate as the years secede until finally it becomes something which he is almost reluctant to talk about -- it occupies a position in his mind akin to the virtue of his mother or his sister."
CADET HONOR CODE
"A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do."
United States Naval Academy "Honor, Courage, Committment"
Admiral John Paul Jones Father of the US Navy
"I would lay down my life for America, but I cannot trifle with my honor."
THE HONOR CONCEPT
"Midshipmen are persons of integrity: They stand for that which is right.
They tell the truth and ensure that the full truth is known.
They do not lie.
They embrace fairness in all actions. They ensure that work submitted as their own is their own, and that assistance received from any source is authorized and properly documented.
They do not cheat.
They respect the property of others and ensure that others are able to benefit from the use of their own property.
They do not steal."
United States Air Force Academy "Integrity First, Service Before Self, Excellence in All We Do."
General Curtis E. LeMay
"I hope that the United States of America has not yet passed the peak of honor and beauty, and that our people can still sustain certain simple philosophies at which some miserable souls feel it incumbent to sneer."
THE HONOR CODE "We will not lie, steal or cheat, nor tolerate among us anyone who does"
