Check out what our YAL Chapter got done over the Summer! ;D
Young Americans for Liberty - Texas State University's Joseph Sadler went to basic training — and took 60 YAL pocket Constitutions with him! Check out his awesome story:
'I walked up to one of my Drill Sergeants with one of the Constitutions. He looked at it and asked “What ya got there, Sergeant?” I handed it to him and told him that it was one of 60 pocket Constitutions that I got from my student organization back home. He excitedly took it from my hand and said that that was outstanding. “In fact,” he said as he thumbed through it and faced the bay, “Let me read this right here.”
...I then passed the Constitutions out to the Privates, reminding them that it is to the Constitution, first and foremost, that they swore an oath. From then on it was not at all uncommon for me to see the Privates reading them when there was down time during training.'
