I’ve often question myself whenever I see craziness that can be misconstrued as treason televised. So I’m wondering if we still have responsibilities for our country after our term is up.

Just one part - the piece about obeying the orders of commissioned officers.
The rest I will do for life.

I look at it this way, you can find the same words verbatim in both the Oath of Enlistment and Oath of Citizenship:
"I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same."
While you only need to take an Oath of Citizenship when you are naturalizing, I like to believe it's implied that all Americans could be counted on for at least this much.
