You’re entirely correct that the oaths we took when we enlisted do not expire. I’m a retired Master Chief Radioman (1971-1994) and am proud to join. We are a Navy family:
My wife is a retired Chief Radioman (1977-1997), my oldest brother Roger is a retired Master Chief Fire Control Technician (1965-1993), and brother Ron served in Vietnam as a 2nd class engineman.
