Oath of Allegiance

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and

entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to

any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of

whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;

that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the

United States of America against all enemies, foreign and

domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;

that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when

required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service

in the Armed Forces of the United States when required

by law; that I will perform work of national importance

under civilian direction when required by the law;

and that I take this obligation freely, without

any mental reservation or purpose of evasion;

so help me God.
