Traditions

The following are traditionally recited at all DAR functions:

THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
"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 AMERICAN'S CREED
"I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed: a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseperable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies."   -- WILLIAM TYLER PAGE

U S Flag

Many chapters also choose to recite the following:

THE PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
