Oath of enlistment becomes out-of-this-world experience
Command Sgt. Maj. of the Army Reserve Ted L. Copeland talks with local recruiters in Wapakoneta, Ohio, his hometown, just before the first ever Future Soldier Swearing-In Ceremony conducted from space. Wapakoneta High School was one of 150 locations to host the live-streaming video session where NASA Astronaut Army Col. Andrew Morgan administered a nation-wide oath of enlistment to approximately 1,000 Army recruits from the International Space Station. Wapakoneta is also the home town of pioneer Astronaut Neil Armstrong.
