U.S. and Canadian Military Oath

Members of the U.S. and Canadian Armed Forces are required to take an oath, signifying their allegiance to their Country. As servicemen and women, we believe deeply in the principles to which we swore, affirmed or declared, and few of us have ever recanted the oath.
