However, an oath is an oath.

Is an oath still binding after one has resigned from the organization or organizations to which the oath was pledged?

I know you know, slowtrot, but for those who don't, "slowtrot" does not refer to the Sherman's or Grant's comments. It was a nickname he earned from cadets at the USMA when he was an instructor. As might be expected, the horses provided to cadets in peacetime were not of the finest variety. He clamped down on excitable cadets by commanding, "slow trot; slow trot!" to reduce the wear and tear on already worn and torn mounts.
