We, who have taken an oath to protect this document, can do no less.


I am William C Sankey Ret Msgt USAF. I was in the Air Force for 25 years. I have 2 tours in Vietnam. I volunteered for the 2nd tour. My brother was in the army and he was sent to Vietnam. I worked on C-123K. I saw too many army/marines going home in boxes. When I arrived in Vietnam, for my second tour, I contacted my brother and told him to tell his commander that his brother was also in Vietnam. I told him that if he did not, then I would contact his commander. He went back to the states. I out ranked my brother and I am older than he is. So he did what I told him to do.

When I took my oath there was no ending date. I feel that my oath is still in force. The Constitution is an important part of this country. Many have fought and died to protect this important document. We, who have taken an oath to protect this document, can do no less.

Amen brother! Today is memorial day and we need to remember what you just said.

Thank you for your service!

I am glad to see there are those who will live up to the oath they have taken to defend the constitution of the United States Of America.
