FLAG FOLDING INSTRUCTIONS
 
 
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."
 
 
NATIONAL ANTHEM
 
O say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
 
On the shore dimly seen through the mist of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream;
‘Til the Star-Spangled Banner – O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
 
O thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven rescued land
Praise the power that has made and preserved us a nation.
The conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto, “In God is out trust;”
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
