I do solemnly swear

30 Sep 2003

This morning, I stood before San Francisco Deputy County Clerk Maribel Jaldon, raised my right hand, and swore the following:

I, Jeffrey Veen, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California, that I take this obligation freely, without mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter.

Now, as a Deputy Marriage Commissioner, I will have the pleasure of binding in to matrimony my two best friends next week Saturday.
