‘Good Germans’

When I graduated from the Quinn Fire Academy in June 1997, I recall standing with my fellow candidates and taking an oath of service.  Somewhere in there was a pledge to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic’, or something like that.  I can’t seem to find the text of that oath anywhere.  Nor can I find the oath of service taken by graduating Chicago Police candidates.  However, if the story linked below is any indication, the police oath is likely written on toilet paper.  ‘Honor’ is nothing; you are what you do.
