My name is AO2(AW) Thibodeau, Philip D.
I am unafraid coming out to my fellow brothers and sisters that I am a OathKeeper, it is illegal to protest while in the military in and out of uniform, this I know. OathKeepers are not Protesters but rather speakers of truth against unlawful orders that MAY be handed down. I also can't get in trouble for something I haven't even failed to do as ordered.
I joined the Navy on 25AUG99, I am from Waterford MI and went in as soon as I graduated from HS. I did three tours aboard the Aircraft Carriers, Lincoln 99-01(West Pac 00), Ronald Reagan 01-05(SA Round the Horn, Plankowner), Roosevelt 05-08(Med Cruise 06 OIF 3). And now I am in NMC Conus West Det Fallon.
I dealt with all aspects of Bombs and Missiles; Building,Breakout,
I first found out about the OathKeepers from a radio show I listen to everyday. Mr. Rhodes was on Alex Jones and I really connected with his words of wisdom.
I love my country that's why I joined almost 10 yrs ago at the end of this Aug. But Loving your country and the people you serve is one thing. However I took my oath to obey the President of the United States no where in the oath does it say I have to like or even respect our leader. To know and see the things that Bush and Obama have done to this country makes me sick, i.e. CFR, Bilderburg Group,Trilateral Commission, Bohemian Grove.
I not only believe that our 10 oaths are true I believe they will be put to the test quite literally. I have until 25MAY11 then my enlistment is up then I will be getting out to hopefully go in to law enforcement or security. its one thing to say you will not follow the illegal and unconstitutional orders that will come down the chain, and still be in when they do. I do not want to be in the Navy when that happens.
