// The National Defense

the march to valley forge

“I 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.”

With that oath I joined a band of brothers in the United States Infantry and served my country in uniform for four years. The oath still binds: it is not diminished with the passage of time or with changes in location. In or out of uniform, the obligation to bear truth faith and allegiance remains. I don’t carry a rifle or a rucksack anymore, but I serve my country still by informing, commenting and advising on issues that affect our national security and the strength and honor of our Armed Services.
