Similarly, why was the sailor's creed developed?

The Sailor's Creed was written as an ethos for all Sailors to live by in order to truly understand and support the Navy and the U.S. Constitution. Our jobs, our oath, our creed ; they are all designed to protect our Constitution, and our rights granted to us from it.”.

Furthermore, when and why was the Sailors Creed developed? The first version of the Sailor's Creed came from an idea in 1986 by Admiral James B. Watkins, Chief of Naval Operations, to form a group that would create a Code of Ethics for the Navy.

Also question is, when did the Sailor's Creed come out?

The current version of the Sailor's Creed was a product of many Blue Ribbon Recruit Training Panels in 1993 at the direction of Admiral Frank B. Kelso II, Chief of Naval Operations. It has been revised twice; once in 1994 under the direction of Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jeremy Boorda, and again in 1997.
