  1. Military Oath Of Enlistment

    U.S. Army | U.S. Marine Corps | U.S. Navy | U.S. Coast Guard | U.S. Air Force | National Guard :unitedstates:


    Everyone who joins the military has one thing in common, they must swear-in by repeating the enlisted or officer Oath. It is an affirmation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    The Oath of enlistment is something that every service member must promise and adhere to for his or her entire military career. From the Oath, you can see that you will be defending the Constitution—not a person. Discipline and accepting orders is sworn to. Finally, you vow to face the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) should any disputes arise.

    The Oath of Enlistment (for enlisted):

    "I, _____, 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; 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."​

    The Oath of Office (for officers):

    "I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the _____ (Military Branch) of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God."​

    Before raising your right hand, enlistees need be sure sure they understand what they are swearing or attesting to. The oath of enlistment should not be taken lightly, it is binding for the next 4 to 6 years at a minimum.

      Amen. I agree. Brave men and women that they are... selfless servants to God and country many of them are. Much family tradition too. Glory be to God in the Highest.
