The Pledge of Allegiance in the
U.S. Code of Law

 

The Pledge of Allegiance is codified twice in the laws of the United States.  The paragraphs in both sections are identical and are titled: "Pledge of allegiance to the flag; manner of delivery":

    The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, ''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 their 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.
