September 17 is Constitution Day

When I (and many who read this) enlisted in the military I swore and oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Today there are many who wish to toss the Constitution aside, say it does not apply, and rewrite America’s history. It is time to again to defend the Constitution, from all domestic enemies beginning with educating folks on the importance and meaning of the document itself.

The American Story


September 17 is Constitution Day in America because on that day in 1787, after 4 months of deliberations, the delegates at the Constitutional Convention in Independence Hall in Philadelphia proposed the Constitution they had drafted to become the Supreme Law of the land. This was the end of one historic deliberation, but it was the beginning of another. The Constitution would be “of no more consequence than the paper on which it is written,” until it was ratified by the people of the United States.
