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.

__________________________

The Pledge of Allegiance to the United States flag is an oath of loyalty to the nation of the
 United States of America.

It is often recited at public events and the beginning

of each school day. 

U.S. Congressional sessions 

open with a recitation of the Pledge.

According to the United States Flag Code the pledge

should be recited 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, with the right hand being

over the heart. 

People in uniform should remain

silent, face the flag, and render the military salute.
