Fidelity 

“Fidelity” is faithfulness to one another, our Corps, and the Nation. It is expressed through our motto, “Semper Fidelis,” meaning “Always Faithful,” as well as our Core Values and Leadership Traits and Principles. The Fidelity resource page contains information on our heritage, Core Values, ethics, and Marine Corps Leadership Traits and Principles.

  • Leadership Traits and Principles
    •  Marine Corps Leadership Traits and Principles While no two leaders are the same, there are some traits of leadership that are universally accepted by all Marines, and Marines are accordingly judged in how they match up to these standards.  Like the Traits, these Principles of leadership are universally accepted among Marines.  They constitute a set of ethical standards which all Marines are expected to meet in service to the Service and the Nation.
    • Commandant's Statement on Core Values Our 30th Commandant, General Carl E. Mundy, wrote a letter to all Marines which sets forth what our Core Values are, and what they mean.  In order to remain a cornerstone of our culture, "Honor,"  "Courage," and "Commitment" can never be reduced to buzz words; all Marines must understand their meaning and embody them
