My name is Richard Mears. I served in the US Army for seven and a half years. I was injured in a non-combat incident in May of 2003, at Balad, Iraq. I was forced to take a medical discharge and leave the military. I wish that I was still in. I would take this pledge in a heartbeat, without a second thought. Maybe we need another pledge. A pledge by American citizens to stand up and actually fight back if orders are passed down along the lines of what is in the pledge.
I, for one, will not sit down or lay down, nor stand idly by, if and when freedoms are taken away from Americans. I will fight. I will stand.
