I recently re-enlisted. I advised the career counselor that I was going to affirm rather than swear. She asked me if I knew the difference. (To me, that should be none of her business.) I told her I am an atheist and will not swear. She said that is no problem, I could still swear to God. WTF!!!
So, my commander, also an atheist, was unused to leaving off the last line, and he said, “So help you God”
He knew he blew it, but no one else did. He spoke the last line softly. I said, “so help me Minnie Mouse” just as softly.
Do I have to re-enlist again?
