The Director of the Air National Guard, has responded to an alarming re-enlistment video that has been circulating the internet.
The video appears to show Master Sergeant Robin Brown of the Tennesee Air National Guard using a dinosaur hand puppet while taking the oath of enlistment. According to USAF 118th Wing website, Brown is the Community Relations Coordinator for the Tennessee Joint Force Headquarters.
She has numerous articles and photos published across the Department of Defense’s websites.
Lieutenant General L. Scott Rice issued the following statement:
“Many of you have seen and commented to me about the recent Facebook post of an Airman in our beloved Air National Guard, taking the re-enlistment oath while using a dinosaur hand puppet. I understand your outrage and frustration.
Let me say, I’m equally shocked and dismayed by this event that mocks such a cherished and honorable occasion. The oath of office or enlistment not only signifies our commitment to our nation, but pays respect to our fellow service members and to those who came before us. We as military members answer to a calling of service and represent the Profession of Arms. This action goes against our very foundation. Tennessee National Guard leadership is aware and addressing the issue.
This single act does not reflect the selfless dedication and professionalism shown everyday by the outstanding Airmen of our Air National Guard in their service to our great nation.”
