The Oath is a series of leadership lessons discussing the connection between the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the U.S. Constitution with the Bill of Rights, as relevant for the Naval Warrior. It is produced through the Stockdale Center For Ethical Leadership at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Guests include professors of History, Political Science, Cyber, and Law at the U.S. Naval Academy. They break down how Naval Officers are impacted by these documents, and they let you know what you need to know in order to do your jobs, and to be a citizen of the United States of America. Midshipmen, as well as Junior Officers, are particularly encouraged to listen.

The Oath is hosted by Michael Sears, a 1978 USNA graduate. Michael spent 5 years in the Marine Corps, then earned a JD/MBA from Stanford University, and went on to a successful career in several prominent Silicon Valley companies. He is currently Director of the Boeing Innovation Leadership Laboratory at the Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership at the Naval Academy.

The sailing ship featured on The Oath is the USS Constitution, a 44-gun United States-class frigate, as built in 1797. Also known as "Old Ironsides". Constitution is berthed at Pier One of the former Charlestown Navy Yard, in Boston.
