Colonel aboard space station to enlist 800 Army recruits | Stars & Stripes

Later this month 800 Army recruits will have to look to the sky as they take an oath of enlistment. Astronaut Col. Andrew Morgan will swear in recruits via a broadcast that will be shown in 100 locations. This is the first time in history where a nationwide oath will be administered from the International Space Station. The ceremony and a question and answer session will be streamed online and through Army Facebook pages. A former special operations physician, Morgan is one of three current Army astronauts and is working on the ISS as a flight engineer. He was selected to become an astronaut in 2013 and then began his new career in 2015, where he has since completed seven space walks.
