My Oath is as good today as when I first took it

I am a veteran. My Father is a veteran, and my Grandfather was a veteran. My wife (God rest her soul) retired from the Military. My son is on active duty now.

I took my first oath to defend the Constitution of United States of America in 1981.

I was Honorably Discharged in 1986.

We do not "un-take" or renounce our oath when we are discharged from active duty.

My Oath is as good today as when I first took it 28 years ago.

I will reaffirm my Oath to the American People now:
I, Mark Hale Mills, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

In light of events that have been going on for many years, I add this to my oath:

I refuse to obey illegal orders that are contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America. I will hold any person who makes an illegal order personally accountable as a traitor and in treason against the People of the United States. Any group, or organization which imposes its will, contrary to the United States Constitution, or the Constitution of the State in which that group is attempting to impose its will, shall be viewed and treated by me as an enemy force, declaring war on the People of the United States. So help me God.

In my wildest nightmares, I could never imagine discussion, let alone valid issues, in the United States of America that have caused so many of us to affirm our oath. Things we are forced to discuss and face today, would have been absolutely unthinkable in the America that I grew up in. I cry for my children and my grandchildren because they do not know what a "Free Country" is.

Tyranny is close at hand and is knocking on every door in America. Law Enforcement and members of our Military; Please make a stand!

Our Free Nation will not survive without your commitment to our Constitution and the American People.

Well Said Sir and Welcome aboard.

One thing you and I can do is to Reach, Teach and Inspire all of the Active Duty and Reserve military as well as the Peace Officers that we can make contact with to Inspire them to "make a stand" as you so rightly say.

Welcome to the Oath Keepers blog spot.
