Hi all, just wanted to say i am proud to see people standing up for the values they believe in and willing to take a stand to defend them.  I guess am a "citizen" oath-keeper, but an oath-keeper none the less, god bless you all.

I have been a member of the Oath Keeper forum for a few weeks now and have yet to introduce myself.

I am a SGT in the U.S. Army reserve(14 years) and OEF veteran with the 10th Mountain.
With all the crazy things going on in the world and especially within our own government we must NOW stand up and defend our Constitution and way of life.
There has been many groups/organizations popping up lately to help save our republic but....................
OATH KEEPERS is the only one that I can get behind 100% NO politics, just the Constitution and our oath to it.

I will stand with my fellow Oath Keepers come what may.

I introduced myself to Oath Keepers at the Oath Keepers blog site yesterday. For the sake of efficiency or laziness (your pick), I'll simply paste that text here as my introduction to this board's members.

Quote
I'm a civilian, a US citizen, born in Texas, as was my dad and his dad before him. I've lived all but one of my 45 years in Dallas county. We've always been at least a little different here in Texas, somewhat rebellious and, in some ways, a bit more independent or freedom-loving than some of our neighbors in other parts of the country. We're definitely more conservative, generally (they say a Democrat in Texas is identical to a Northeast Republican).

If you'd told me just a couple of years ago that what is happening now in this country would happen during my lifetime, I'd have thought you were full of sh!t. Forget convincing me it was coming within the next couple of years. Further, I've never been one to buy into conspiracy theories, to look for the worst or to think with pessimism.

Yet since last summer/fall, I've been nagged by a feeling of impending doom, that something big and awful is about to happen. I finally shared this feeling and, to back it up, the news I can glean from outside the sugar-coated BS the MSM feeds us with my boyfriend. Having been friends since high school and therefore knowing that I'm no Chicken Little, he believes me and we're taking steps necessary, preparing for what may (most likely will) soon take place. Without going into unnecessary and foolish detail here, let's just say we'll be marching with you if it comes to that.

On the brighter side, well, you in the military and law enforcement are the brighter side. Your words of commitment to the oath(s) you've taken help calm my fears and the sacrifices you've made, so so many with their very lives, help strengthen my resolve as an American and a Constitutionalist.

Like you, I hope that your numbers, supplemented by us non-military/law enforcement folks who pledge our commitment to the Constitution and The People, will be enough to prevent or stop any plans of action by those who'd like to abolish our Constitution and Country. Just the same, while I hope for the best, I'll prepare for the worst.

Incidentally, or coincidentally, my eldest nephew and the reason for my chosen handle, turned 18 last week and enlisted in the Navy. He's said since he was just a little guy that he was going into the armed services when he finishes high school. Funny how some people seem born to serve our country, isn't it? I think he'll make an excellent soldier. Of course, I'm very worried for him but I'm also very proud of him. And I do plan to send him the link to this site so, as young as he is, he'll know the right thing to do if that time and situation should come for him.

Again, although it's not the purpose of Oath Keepers and this site, I thank you so much for your public declaration of commitment to your oath to Country and Constitution. I can't say that I'm worthy of it but I can say that I'm very grateful for it.

Yours truly,
CoolAunt

So, thats me. And I already know a little a bout you from your posts here and at te Oath Keepers blog site.

Now, let's get to work.

I want to be an Oath-Keeper

Then keep your oath.  If you are ever given one of the "10 Orders We Will Not Obey" - then refuse.  If you have sworn an Oath to support and defend the Constitution, and have not broken your oath, you ARE an Oath-Keeper.

Welcome.

CoolAunt,
Thanks so much for a lucid and powerful testimonial, and thank you for re-posting it here as well. I'd like to see others post their testimonials here even though they've already posted them up at the Oath Keepers' site.

I want to commend you for the spirit in your heart, and thank you for your excellent support of our movement. Like you, I'm greatly inspired by the many testimonials our law enforcement and military have shared. Good Americans, one and all! (You too!)

And a note to others here who've made their consciences and spirits of loyalty to the American people known, I want to welcome you all here, and thank you for carrying the torch of freedom. With such folks in the movement, Oath Keepers is showing every sign of being exactly the movement which America desperately needs right now. I'm deeply grateful to each of you.

Many blessings to every one of you!
Salute!
Elias

Hey there guys,

I joined Oath Keepers on October 7, 2009, but just got around to making my first post here.

And, just like CoolAunt in her post back before this one, I too am quite a lazy soul !

So I'm just 'cutting and pasting' my testimonial from the Oath Keepers main site and putting it here (isn't SLOTH one of the seven deadly sins? Crap!)

For what it's worth, here goes...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first time I raised my right hand and swore to my Oath was in February, 1970. I was a starry-eyed 17 year old Marine Corps recruit. I can still remember the goose bumps I got while I was listening to what I was swearing to protect and defend. I took that Oath very seriously, to the depths of my being.

Over the last four decades, I’ve sworn to that same Oath seven times during my two enlistments in the Marine Corps, enlistments in the North Carolina and Ohio National Guard, and twice as a Police Officer. I’m currently an active duty Police Officer in northeast Ohio.

Now, I’m 57 years old, not quite so starry-eyed anymore, but I STILL get those same goose bumps whenever I hear that Oath recited. I STILL feel it in the depths of my being.

Over those same four decades, I’ve watched as our Constitution has been disregarded, ridiculed, bypassed, and downright ignored by our Federal Government while they’ve been systematically slicing away at the rights and liberties of my fellow countrymen.

And, you know what?

I’m about TIRED of it.

It’s time to do something about it.

It’s time for us to stand up and be counted.

In the words of Gunny R. Lee Ermey, when he portrayed Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in the film “Full Metal Jacket”…

“SOUND OFF LIKE YOU GOT A PAIR!”

I’m ready.

Welcome, SteadyEddie!  Keep yer powder dry.

(Gotta love that phrase--"Sound off like you got a pair"!  I'm glad to be in the company of men who've got 'em.  Too many guys have forgotten that they have 'em these days.)

To abuse a phrase perhaps used in too many speeches, loosely, perhaps individuals such as those who post their testimonials at the oath-keepers are the last-best hope for this republic, which even as it continues its slide may still be the last best hope for humanity.

Everyone who is or was a federal or state employee  has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  For those you know who are know current federal employees, remind them that they are bound not only by their oath, but by statute, code of federal regulations, and executive order, to “…place loyalty to the Constitution, the laws and ethical principles above private gain...”  Private gain would include promotions or other job related "goodies" for ignoring their obligation.
