Overview

As service members continue to fight the War on Terror, many are reflecting on the military oath that they pledged to keep. Four words ultimately transform American citizens into Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen. Bohlman, a veteran, considers the importance of the military oath, examines the power of faith in times of conflict, and helps prepare military members and their families for the challenges of their service commitment. It is an excellent resource to inspire the troops for service and preserve the core values of the U.S. Armed Forces. Special Features: Appendix section includes reference resources such as a list of all U.S. Military Oaths, the Code of Conduct, the Will to Survive, the Flag Folding Ceremony, and much more. Also contains end-of-chapter reflection questions that make it a great tool for individual and small group studies in an academic setting or a deployed environment.

Editorial Reviews

Bob Holmes
"So Help Me God" reviews the history of the military oath, examines God’s presence in times of trouble, and helps prepare military members for challenges to their service commitment. According to retired Army Colonel and current U.S. Congressman, Joe Wilson the book “is a challenging message about verbal integrity and commitment that is both inspirational and informative...a must read for all men and women in uniform."
Jeffrey Oster
Despite the importance of the military oath, little has been written on this subject, but this book fills the gap in a superb work that challenges and encourages those in the defense of this Nation. - Jeffrey W. Oster, Lieutenant General, USMC (Ret.)
