Future US Army Soldiers took the Oath of Enlistment at the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, on September 25, 2022. The weekend did not fall short of impressive, with static military vehicle displays, the 1st Cavalry Division honor guard and band performing, and a flyover from the US Air Force.

The US Army swore in 20 future Soldiers in front of an audience of thousands. Officiating the event was 2nd Lt. Jennylyn Thompson, an automated logistical specialist with the 13th Expeditionary Sustainment Command out of Fort Hood, Texas.

This was Thompson’s first time being at a NASCAR event, and she described it as a unique and welcoming experience.

“This is obviously an amazing opportunity,” Thompson said. “The fans have shown so much military support.”
