The Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

  • Should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.
  • When not in uniform men should remove any non-religious headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.
  • Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute.
  • Members of the Armed Forces not in uniform and veterans may render the military salute in the manner provided for persons in uniform.
