Some troops refused to confiscate people's arms during Katrina.

Thanks to Oath Keepers for the video.

There is honor left in this world after all.

Bet he wouldn't have run from the rally in Va. or D.C.

Straightarrow...couldn't have said it better myself!
I'm not big on OK anymore, because of that, but if Rhodes can get this guy some publicity and do some good, then more power to'im.
Taylor, I think it's been there, but the instances of it becoming visible are few and far between, unfortunately.
Hearing about how many others felt as he did is very encouraging.

Now there is a man of honor and with the courage stand on his convictions.

Unfortunately, there were TO MANY at Katrina who DID NOT take their oaths seriously...

(You can be sure that somewhere in the bowels of the P'sTB, he has been branded).

Run from the rally?

What happened?

I´ve been to Erath,La. and it was a good thing for everyone involved that they were not confiscating arms.Those¨COON ASS´s¨would not have have let them just take away their guns.But the guy has a good attitude and I hope Rhodes can bring more of the Military Services in line with what it is that they Swore to Protect,the Constitution.And not the Ass Holes in power at the time.
But what did catch my ear was that the 82nd. was in New Orleans, What was the regular Army doing there and the 82nd.at that?Do you still think it can´t happen here?

I left the following comment:

"As I've read elsewhere, one can be damn sure THIS man would not have run from the demonstrations in Virginia on Patriot's Day 2010.

Thank G*D for some real oath-keepers."

As I didn't want to tie Mike's name to it without his consent, I didn't reference SSI.

I would have linked/credited SA but had no blog or other way to do so...

Still, I believe I made clear that the words and concept weren't my own. If anyone disagrees, please say so and I'll go kill the comment entirely, or edit as needed.

Oh yes! Local boy does the Army, Nation, Utah, Utah National Guard, Constitution, His Family, and God Proud!

Then gets reported on Sipsey Street Irregulars.

Thank You Mike! You made my week.

Greetings:

Oath Keepers has now posted the COMPLETE interview with Staff Sergeant Joshua L. May, Utah National Guard, by Stewart Rhodes, of the Oath Keepers movement.

I created a playlist, consisting of five (05) videos, which I entitled "CONSTITUTION UPHELD", of this COMPLETE interview at the YOU TUBE web site, and here is the URL for that playlist:

I've also posted it on my personal blog, "OUR ETERNAL STRUGGLE", and on the FACEBOOK social networking web site.

Thank you.

While we may not agree with all the decisions made by Oath Keepers we cannot stress too loudly the vital mission it has chosen for itself. Oath Keepers is not a confrontational organization and in fact that could be highly detrimental to its mission of reaching Mil and LEO personal. I don't agree with everything Mike says or does either but I respect and support his mission.

This man is a true patriot and a true Oathkeeper! He did what was right when the rubber hit the road! We should all rejoice!

Dedicated Dad, I do not yet blog. You could always use my nom de plume, or not.

I don't think mankind will lose the cure for cancer if I don't get some attention. I care far more about the ideas getting around than I do getting recognition for any I might accidentally generate in by my melon.
