OathKeepers made a breakthroughSubmitted by DFaubion on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 15:00
My name is Daniel Faubion and I am a Private First Class that felt the same way. My new contract is up in 2015 and I was wondering how I would make it with my strong views. I fought an uphill battle for bringing the Constitution back into the hearts and minds of US soldiers for YEARS. From the second week of Basic Training I was questioning those in command on the lack of education we received (the non-existence of it rather) about the one thing we swore to defend. Well I am proud to announce that I now (as a PFC) teach a class to COs, NCOs and enlisted soldiers on "Keeping the Oath. What happened to the Constitution." Ask your officers to let you teach those around you. They may not want you to know this but you CAN make a difference.
Also, join me in being an OathKeeper. www.oathkeepers.org
If you don't feel right though you have that chance to get out. In the words of Napolean Dynamite
"Follow your heart"
