Testimonial of Current Serving Montana State Trooper and Iraq War Veteran

patch-1-4-76-98MHP patchI was fortunate enough to be told of your organization by a friend. I am a veteran of over twenty years of service to America. I have retired from the reserves (Marine Corps and Army) but work as a state trooper in Montana.

I have always understood my oath of enlistment to be an oath of allegiance to the Constitution and not the government. I am happy to know I am not the only one who feels that way. I hold no ties to either major political party because they have lost sight of the true principles of the Constitution. Our Republic was founded on the belief that everyone has an unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

As a fellow Oath Keeper, I am interested in adding some of what I have to the coffers. I will be going to your website and making a donation to the cause of liberty and freedom.

I am most likely on some government sponsored list of anti-government radicals, so I am not concerned about them finding out my stance on this issue. Although there is always a chance my use of my freedom of expression may get me fired. But I will not serve a master that does not serve my Constitution. If being a patriot makes me radical than so be it, until our belief becomes the predominant one. As the Marine Corps motto says Semper Fidelis and I am always faithful to the Constitution.

Good day, ladies and gentlemen.

Garrett D. Van Hoose
