The Rifleman’s Creed was written by Major General William H. Rupertus, during WWII, in late 1941 or early 1942.
The Rifleman’s Creed is also known as “My Rifle” or “The Creed of the United States Marine.” Enlisted Marines learn it during recruit training, as part of the Marine Corp Doctrine. As part of that doctrine, it expected that they will also live by that creed.
