Defending the US Constitution

The very first pledge in our Oath of Enlistment is to “defend the Constitution.” We defend this before our all.  The Constitution is synonymous with our country.  Without the the Amendments and Articles contained within, our country would be unstable.  The Constitution is the solid foundation our government stands upon.  As Americans we carry the torch of our Forefathers.  This light has seen our country through the darkest of times.

Oath of Enlistment

“I ‘your name’ 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.  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!”  -Oath of Enlistment

Our Oath of Enlistment does not expire.  We are United States Marines for life!  Until  we draw our last breath, we will defend our country.  Our allegiance to the American values of freedom is unwavering.  Democracy courses through our American veins!  We continue to selflessly sacrifice for our country.  Without sacrifice freedom would never exist.

Freedom has never tasted sweeter than those that fought for it.  To us the values we hold dear mean something.  We have traveled to countries that do not know the taste of freedom.  We can speak from experience on the subject of freedom.
