I think I took my first oath in 1956 when I joined the Navy. Was an airdale, flying ecm missions over the North Atlantic. Then again when I enlisted in the Army and then numerous times with re-enlistments. Did eight years active and 20+ in the active reserve retiring in '96.
Also took the oath when I became a police officer retiring with 25 years.
I have always considered that oath sacred and will stand with others to defend it.
