I, Mr. Manifesto, do solemnly swear 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; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
That is the U.S. military’s oath of enlistment. Seeing as though I took that oath years ago it is perhaps embarrassing that I never noticed something about it: there’s no time limit on it. The oath doesn’t expire when your service ends.
Commies, peaceniks, hippies and other miscreants beware. I’m watching you.
