OathKeepers made a breakthrough

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"

and it gives me hope. Thank you!

They call you PFC, I say a First Class Private!

Thank you, for what you are doing and where you are doing it. I was fascinated to hear Carl Miller discuss how his passion for the Constitution began in Viet Nam, as a military training project. I encourage you to watch his series "Know Your Constitution" - he will take your appreciation of that document to a new level, I promise.
I have a serious question for you, though: Who prosecutes treason?Who files a charge? How does an investigation get started? On 9-12, a FELONIOUS destruction of a crime scene played out on global TV, whoever ordered that clean up needs arrested. Anyone involved in the clean up needs questioned - who gave them the order?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I have always wondered WHY the military did not provide an extensive study into the Constitution as many do not enlist with an adequate education of the document to which they swear an oath. Soldiers need mental knowledge equal to physical training, hi-tech equipment and patriotism.
Hope your idea and efforts spread throughout the military.

How Dare You

try to educate soldiers about things like the constitution and your oath? After all you all are nothing but dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy! Kissinger says so! (That piece of shit got a nobel peace prize btw) GAG! (To those who take my comment serious, I am being SARCASTIC!)

Thank you
