Testimonial of Retired Infantry Platoon Sergeant

Infantry: "Follow Me!"

I am a retired U.S. Army Infantry NCO (SFC/E7) platoon sergeant.
I last served with D Co, 1/8 Inf, 4th ID... I also was in CSC, 1/46 Inf, 1st AD.

I have been stating for many months that I took an oath when I first enlisted back in 1975 and that no one told me I was no longer bound by that oath when I retired. That oath was to protect and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, so help me God. I intend to do just that, as this is not the country I intended to bequeath to my sons and grandchildren. It is extremely refreshing to know their is an organization which supports my beliefs - please count me in as a member.

You have my permission to use both my name and statement, as simple as it is in comparison to some of the others. It is an honor and privilege to serve with you and stand beside all the others who remember their oath and allegiance to the Constitution of the great nation.

SFC, USA (ret)

I seem to have lost my last post, is it being screened? It was up earlier?

The worst thing we could do is hide and shut up! What you want to do is saturate them, that way it becomes very hard to do anything! We so far outnumber them they would be slitting their own throat. Keep your men at a healthy distance from each other and you become increasingly hard to fight.This is why so many iraqi's died, they would bunch up together, I know of no army that can fight the massive american Rifleman.
We not only can hit at a distance, we have the firepower as well, not to mention 1/4 - 1/2 million snipers.
If just 2 men take out one man the enemy will run out of men very early.
There is so many of us it does not matter which way they turn they will be surounded.

Rick, the purpose of Oath Keepers is to keep such a day as you speak of from happening in the first place. This is not the venue for discussions on how to wage 4th Gen. warfare or resistance. Those are certainly valid topics for discussion, but this is not the place for it.

The singular mission of Oath Keepers is to reach, teach, and inspire those who took the oath, especially active duty, to keep it and to know when to say no to unlawful orders.

We want active duty to feel comfortable coming here and posting comments, and even to send in an occasional testimonial. If you turn this into a "how to conduct guerrilla warfare" discussion, fewer of them will want to participate.
