Testimonial: I swore an oath in front of God and I still stand behind it!!
Testimonial: The Oath I took on November 11th, 1987, is an Oath that is for Life!
There is a reason that the first part of the Oath is the most important, and also the part that follows us for the rest of our lives after our years of service have ended! “I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”!
These are simple words, but VERY Powerful words and they are not open for interpretation as are those written in our 2nd Amendment, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” THESE WORDS I WILL DEFEND TO MY DYING BREATH!
Testimonial: I have been in Law Enforcement since 1981, for you young people that has been over 30 years. I have taken the Oath of Office for County Patrol Deputy, Municipal Officer, State Police Trooper and as a Federal Agent. I did then and still Swear to protect the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies foreign or domestic. I feel the Constitution itself is under attack and has been for many years now. I feel that the system itself is constantly attempting to rewrite the founding fathers ideas and true spirit in which the Document was constructed, penned and passed.
God Bless America and the Troops that protect her at home and abroad no matter what service they be in Military or Law Enforcement.
Testimonial: This is a poem I wrote that comprises my thoughts of service and keeping my oath. Might I recommend these passages as an anthem for all oath keepers.
Today we will stand and be counted.
We’re crossing the line in the sand.
Regardless that days may be numbered,
We’ll fight and defend our great land.
Side by side; we are brothers.
Tempest tossed, we’ll not fail.
We’ll weather the battles together.
The strength of a true sentinel.
When eastern winds start blowing,
The pillars may falter and fail.
But up from the dust we will gather,
So our red, white and blue may prevail.
With numbers swift to be counted,
Armed with rifle or blade.
Opposition will dwindle,
With kept promises we’ve made.
I’ll stand beside you brother,
Together head held high.
Defending our nations colors,
I’ll fight, I’ll bleed, I’ll die.
When blood is spilled for purpose,
Our nation will remain.
As will our loyal duty,
And allegiance to the same.
Reis R. Kash:
Testimonial: As a two war Army veteran (Korea – Vietnam) and a former senior official with the U.S. Marshals Service, I have always considered myself bound by the oaths I took as an enlisted man, Chief Warrant officer, and U.S. Marshal, these being exactly the position of the Oath Keepers to which I now belong.
Serving in any capacity – civilian or military – under the current regime would be impossible because of its constant assault upon the Constitution and the people of our Republic. I strongly urge every member and every potential member of Oath Keepers to strongly defend the Constitution and the principles of this organization.
Reis R. Kash, CWO-3 USA.
Dave Reid USN (Ret):
Testimonial: My father served in three wars: as a guerrilla on Leyte during WW II, as a naval intelligence agent in Japan during the Korean War, and as head of Naval Counterintelligence in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. He first took his oath in 1938, and he believed in, and loved this country.
I continued his legacy with my own naval career, taking my oath in September 1964, and serving as an enlisted cryptologist for twenty years, including two tours in Vietnam.
My oldest son continued our family legacy, serving 5 years as a Navy SEABEE,
including 6 months in Somalia, having taken his oath in 1990.
We take our patriotism and love of country seriously, and stand by our oath. I will uphold my oath, refuse to comply with unlawful and/or illegal orders, and fight to the death if necessary to preserve our freedoms.
As my youngest son, a non-veteran says, “When they pry my cold dead fingers from my gun, they’ll have to wade through a foot of expended brass, and the barrel will still be hot”.
