Officer's Oath: Why My Vow to Defend the Constitution Demanded That I Sacrifice My Career
By Terry Lakin with Jack Cashill and David Mercaldo
Publication date: June 15, 2012
It is not a 'birther' story. It is, rather, the story of a man who made a principled decision to adhere to the oath he willingly took as an officer in the United States Army. It is a story of the personal consequences of that decision and the far-reaching effect it has had on the eligibility issue.
Jack Cashill, author of numerous books, assisted Terry in telling his story. David Mercaldo, a New York-based author, has interviewed and written vignettes of the many people who contributed to Terry's case. A number of notable individuals have also contributed essays on key subjects relating to the issue.
The book is a complete story of Terry's decision, the immediate consequences and the long-range effect of Terry's decision. It should generate a substantive and engaging dialogue on the issues addressed.
Overall it is a unique book and an engaging story. Initial readers have given it high marks. It will be of great interest to supporters, detractors and those who may have had little contact with the issues for which Terry has stood.
