Posted on 01/30/2013 7:12:12 AM PST by Perseverando
The following letter was disseminated and signed by over 1,000 current and former Army Special Forces soldiers (Green Berets) in support of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, specifically as a defensive measure against tyranny. The letter was compiled through the joint efforts of current and former Special Forces personnel over at www.ProfessionalSoldiers.com , and quietly disseminated for signatures among secure, vetted circles.
Protecting the Second Amendment Why all Americans Should Be Concerned
We are current or former Army Reserve, National Guard, and active duty US Army Special Forces soldiers (Green Berets). We have all taken an oath to 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. The Constitution of the United States is without a doubt the single greatest document in the history of mankind, codifying the fundamental principle of governmental power and authority being derived from and granted through the consent of the governed. Our Constitution established a system of governance that preserves, protects, and holds sacrosanct the individual rights and primacy of the governed as well as providing for the explicit protection of the governed from governmental tyranny and/or oppression. We have witnessed the insidious and iniquitous effects of tyranny and oppression on people all over the world. We and our forebears have embodied and personified our organizational motto, De Oppresso Liber [To Free the Oppressed], for more than a half century as we have fought, shed blood, and died in the pursuit of freedom for the oppressed.
Like you, we are also loving and caring fathers and grandfathers. Like you, we have been stunned, horrified, and angered by the tragedies of Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Fort Hood,

Thank-you for your service.
Remember kids, in a martial law scenario there are many, many, MANY ex-military veterans with very specialized skill sets that can and likely will be used against any treasonous military committing acts of violence against American citizens.

So the sides are being chosen.....lefist marxist political insurgency or the portion of the U.S. military that took their oath to uphold the Constitution seriously......I’ll go with the “special forces.”
Great letter which also serves to help us articulate credible arguments against gun control.
Hmm-hmm. That's working well.
I may be old but I’m all in. We need to take this country back and soon.
Thank you, but I'm just the messenger. I'm not any where near eligible to be among the esteemed gathering that signed this letter.
Indeed it does.
(BTW - Heads up, Travis!)
“Ooh-rah!” Hard charging, motivated, Devil dogs! This is VERY encouraging. Stay busy people. Don’t let it over rule normal life, but spend a little extra time getting ready, reading, storing, and strategizing.
and what you said
Unfortunately those that have names on lists will be the first rounded up. However, Green Berets are uniquely qualified to help any resistance that may go asymmetrical .... it’s what they “do”. Train regular folks to “do stuff”. God love those brave bastards.
I am reminded of the Barry Sadler classic, “The Green Berets”
“100 men will test today, but only three win the Green Beret”.
Different thread I know, but how many women would ever make the Green Berets if only 3 out of a 100 men can?
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”
