“A oath?” I asked curiously.

“Yes, a oath,” he repeated. “You must promise to be strong for me while I am over there, you must promise me that you will never lose hope in us, and you must promise me that you will believe that every second of the day that I will be thinking about you and know that I am coming home to you when this is all over.”
