Lt. Col. Terry Lakin Discusses Obama's Eligibility and His New Book Officer's Oath


Terry's Full Biography
Terry Lakin's Bio is a Clear Indicator of Dedicated, Principled, Soldier

Lieutenant Colonel Terrence ("Terry") Lakin served as Chief of Primary Care and Flight Surgeon for the Pentagon's DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic. He is the lead Flight Surgeon charged with caring for Army Chief of Staff General Casey's pilots and air crew. LTC Lakin, selected for promotion to Colonel, is a native of Colorado, whose residency is Tennessee.

LTC Lakin's numerous awards and decorations include the Army Flight Surgeon Badge, Combat Medical Badge, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with one Oak Leaf Clusters, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Armed Forces Expedition Medal, the Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon sixth award and the NATO service medal. He has served previously in Honduras, Bosnia, El Salvador, Korea, and Afghanistan.

For well over a year, LTC Lakin has asked through his chain of command and his Congressional delegation for proof that President Obama is Constitutionally eligible to serve as his Commander-in-Chief. He has explained to his superiors that he cannot understand how his Oath of Office to protect and defend the Constitution does not allow military officers to pursue this proof of eligibility.

LTC Lakin received military orders in late February for deployment to Afghanistan, including a requirement that he provide "copies of his birth certificate." LTC Lakin is prepared to provide a certified copy of his certification of vital record that lists his birth hospital, physician's name and other key information. He has provided this document for many other required processes, such as his commissioning into the military as an officer, his security clearance and his marriage license. He is the highest ranking officer to go public over this controversy and the first active duty officer to do so.

"The only people who don't want to disclose the truth

are people with something to hide." President Obama

We must have the DUMBEST ELECTED OFFICIALS and the most COWARDLY MILITARY LEADERS imaginable. Members of Congress privately admit that the president hasn't provided credentials to prove that he's qualified to BE president but say... if he's not really the president, then he couldn't be impeached! Oh, well, Catch 22! Tough luck for us 313,892,308 Americans who might have had an imposter for a president for the last few years. We don't have even a couple Senators or Congressmen not too dimwitted to figure something out to get to the truth of matter? To at least prevent him from running for a second term unless and until he can make public some bona fide records and provide an explanation for the documents Sheriff Arpaio proved questionable if not outright fraudulent (not just the BC but Selective Service card)? Some in the military have admitted the same but also don't know what to do about? Nothing in the protocol covers it! Anyone ever have an ORIGINAL THOUGHT anymore? I don't get it. Thank you Lt. Col. Lakin. I'm sorry for the grief you endured for trying to take your oath seriously to defend the Constitution.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

THen Barry S hides everything about himself

and his past. This is what happens in a military promotion system, so called suck up and move up. !5 years active service, I can tell you that was one of the comon sayings. While I was active I noticed that it started at the LTC rank and got worse the higher you got. Full Bull COl and up I had never seen even one person I could call human. These people did not have my confidence or trust and I was a top NCO in the Newclear Missle (ms spelled on purpose even though I dont have to try) The military needs to ditch the entire officer corps and start again from scratch.


His New Book, "Officer's Oath"

should be a gold peice when it comes out.


for a honorable soldier who laid it all on the line for the Constitution! Good to see there are still some that take their oath seriously.

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

I salute you sir with great honor!

You have done you country and your fellow patriots well!
Thank you sir!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Every time a good man stands up

The machine breaks down. Thank yo Col. you are few and far in between in the higher officer ranks, thank you.


Thank you sir!

Thank you sir!
