Military Law Review

Introduction: You have held personal safety and comfort above duty, honor, and country, and, in so doing, have deliberately violated your oath as an officer of the United States Army. These words of reprimand were imposed upon an Army lieutenant colonel by Lieutenant General Robert N. Young, then Commanding General, Sixth US Army, on 21 February 1956. Considerable concern arose in the minds of military officers of the United States who read General Young?s words. Questions of unsure loyalty, divided loyalty, and the meaning of an officer?s oath were voiced by some commissioned officers. Others stated: ?In many years of active service in the Armed Forces of the United States I have never been reminded, in training, of an officer?s oath, nor heard a discussion of its meaning.?
