I first took the oath in 1956 when I joined the Navy. Then again in 1963 when I enlisted in the Army volunteering for the newly formed Special Forces.

Have eight years of active duty and almost 21 in the active reserve (all Special Forces), retiring in '96. My civilian job was a police officer on Torrance PD. So you see, I've taken the OATH many times.

My son, back from Afghanistan where he received a Bronze Star, Purple Heart and CIB is now getting ready for deployment to Iraq. He also is an OATH keeper and ready as I am to defend that OATH.

Thank you for all that you are doing and offering the opportunity to be a member of this proud group.

We are honored to be associated with men like you and your son, God bless you both and thank you for your service to our great country. You've served on both sides (military and police) of our organization, so like some of the rest of us, you speak both languages. We need at least two representatives in each state that are willing to attend at least one national conference in addition to meeting all of us on the Lexington Green every April 19th to reaffirm our sacred oaths to the constitution. If you're interested let me or Stewart know. We're both listed on the right side of our blog.
