Just in case there are those that have not seen it (I was one until just a short while ago), a ghostly reader ( ;P ) pointed me in the direction of THIS SITE. I thank you very much my friend, a thousand times over. I will be passing it on to the spouse in the morning.
I didn't make it all the way through Basic (hello torn meniscus), but I swore the same oath to defend the Constitution that every other soldier swore. I endured the same training, until my injury, that every other soldier endured. Had I not been female, I would have probably been entered into the sniper training program (as told to me by a Drill that was one for ten years). My skills and training have not been dulled by time, neither has my memory of the oath I swore and the pride I felt while taking that oath. It is loyalty to the Constitution that I pass on to my children, not politicians or government. It is the ideology of our forefathers that I teach my boys, the belief that WE THE PEOPLE are the backbone of this country...even if we don't act like it at times.
I will still defend the Constitution, I will still defend the rights of every American. I took an oath, I will keep it.
P.S. Never taken the soldier's oath or anything similar but want to do so as a regular ol' Patriot...GO HERE.
