The National Defense Academy Cadets’Pledge


"Honor, Courage, Propriety"

We, the cadets of Obaradai Hill, dedicated to defend our nation, pledge to realize the principles of honor, propriety, and courage as we cultivate within ourselves a spirit of autonomy and self-control. We will nourish these principles to develop the maturity we will need to attain our objectives. We will uphold these principles with sincerity in the hope that we can preserve the glorious traditions of the National Defense Academy of Japan.
