In Ancient Rome, veterans were a keystone of the nascent political, quasi-feudal system: especially in the Roman Republic, a general would bind his soldiers to him by promises of land and the spoils of war, and rely upon them for political support later on. Pompey, for example, made efficient political use of his veterans.
All military servicemen make a vow: "I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
|“||To support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God."||”|
