I enlisted in the United States Navy July 1973 as a three by three service and re-enlisted just after two and half years with a total of 6 years and 7 months active duty.
Over the years I have been telling people throughout my walk in life that I was never released from the oath I took. In fact I believe my obligation began at a much younger age. While I attended school I pledged each day allegiance to the flag. My raising was this that we first honor God, then Country and then Family.
Right now my life is not going so good, but God is still there as he always has been, I still live in the greatest country on the planet. In fact my ancestors fought like hell to get here and my grandchildren intend on staying. Plus I have my brothers and sisters in arms that is you folks out there.
I recently went to a Glen Beck viewing party the We surrounded them viewing in that room filled with over 130 American patriots we swore that we are taking back our country. I also stand with the Gathering of Eagles and no man will ever take that away from me. I live free or die fighting to do so and I know I am not alone.
My brothers both served one Marine, one Army one is gone and one buried his son in Arlington.
You have my solemn promise that I still stand by that oath and that pledge. As things get better for me and my family we will contribute.
God Bless America and my fellow brothers and sisters in arms. Together we will teach the next generation of Oath Keepers and this great nation will be here clean and honest when God returns to set up his new Earth and new Heaven. I am an Oath Keeper by choice and will die defending that and you if need be God Bless.
