The meme appears to be inspired by a speech during the movie Troy, in 2004.

The following is the true soldier’s creed as per the Army web site:

The Soldier’s Creed

I am an American Soldier.

I am a warrior and a member of a team.

I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.

I will always place the mission first.

I will never accept defeat.

I will never quit.

I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.

I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.

I am an expert and I am a professional.

I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.

I am an American Soldier.

God Bless our military today and every day, and let’s have a special recognition for the soldiers of yesteryear who fought for our independence over 241 years ago.
