Swearing In & Headed to Boot Camp
Posted By: Karen Kontrath 02-28-11
It's been a week since my 20 year old son swore in to be a Marine and headed to boot camp. Haven't heard any news yet, but I am sure that he is very busy and I hope to hear from him soon. Watching him swear in was a very moving moment for me. I am just so proud of how strong and confident he looked and took pics that I will treasure for a life time. Hoping to hear from him soon. The image is Doug at Fort Dix MEPS swearing into the Marines on 22 February 2011.
I 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.
