    The oath is listed below:

    I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of Rhode Island 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 Governor of Rhode Island and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God.

    He will ship for boot after the first of the year. He will be with the 143rd Airlift Wing out of Quonset.

    I am proud and sad at the same time. I am going to quietly make a lot of beer vanish.

    Please en=xtend my congratulations and thanks to him.

    I'd hoist a beer myself, but I don't drink any more. You can have mine!

    Congratulations and thanks to both of you for your sacrifices. Being an Army brat, I know how important the family is to the soldier as well.
