We commenced service as volunteers at the end of August, swearing to defend the United States.
Here is the oath:
I, Jason McFarland
do solemnly affirm
that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States
against all enemies, domestic and foreign,
that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same,
that I take this obligation freely,
without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion,
and that I will well and faithfully discharge my duties in the Peace Corps.
It was a profound experience that merits further reflection, but in the meantime, here are a few photos!
