Veteran’s Day Remembering My Oath
Veteran’s Day: Remembering My Oath
November 11, 2016
As with my fellow Veterans, I remember my oath taken upon my enlistment. It is an Oath that I took very seriously back then, and an Oath to which, modified as now I am a civilian, I still consider binding today.
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; [that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter a citizen of the United States of America; So help me God.].”
Hillsdale College, the only secular college in the United States that I recommend, as produced the following video to commemorate Veterans Day and Remembering the Oath:
