That I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of Minnesota against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
The ravings of an infantryman far and long from the home he left, but trying to find his place in this world.

Anyone who has ever had a boss who was obsessed with some minor rule or regulation needs to understand how lucky they are not to have been in the military. In the service, an obsessive or anal retentive superior isn't just an annoyance, they are a person who can legally order you to comply with their rules.
In that spirit, I present to you a public service message that a former CSM (Command Sergeant Major) of mine would have endorsed-the Army PT belt, which is designed to make you more visible at night. Bear in mind that us infantry guys usually like to be less visible at night, so this goes against instinct, especially in a combat zone.
It should go without saying, but what you are reading on this blog is my opinions. Unless specifically stated otherwise, the content here does not represent the official view of the Minnesota National Guard, the US Army, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Republican Party, the Great Pumpkin and especially not my wife.
