To Protect and Defend
"I, (Your Name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) 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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
I got to do something the other day that ranks in the top Ten of Coolest Things I have ever Done. I was asked by my Team Sergeant if I would re-enlist him. Sure, No sweat,( even though he got the Germany Option in his contract, Jerk). "So when do ya wanna do it." "Friday at the National Archieves." Sure, Wait, What? Where do you want to do this? "At the National Archives, In front of the Consitution." Seriously, Holy Crap. Call the Det Sergeant, We good for this? Yes Sir, Already coordinated. Wear your Dress Blues. Got that, Dress Cover, No Beret. Copy. So the BC, First Sergeant, Nate (reenlistee), Myself and Chris the Det Sergeant took a drive up to DC. And Nate Took his Oath in front of the Constitution. "So Help Me God"
That Was Cool.
