“I, _____, do solemnly affirm 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.”

The above statement is what soldiers recite when they are sworn into the United States military. Miles Darlington, a veteran of many different jobs and levels of service, holds this code in high regard, not just for when he served in the National Guard, but in his everyday life. His experiences have taken him across the globe and the country, from Japan to Florida.
