The Pledge of Allegiance in the United States

In the United States, the Pledge of Allegiance is a promise of loyalty to the country and its flag. Some public school classrooms recite the Pledge before beginning classes in the morning. As an immigration service, USAFIS’ experts helps people from all over the world move to the United States to live, work, and study.

The Pledge of Allegiance was first published in 1892, but it was not until 1942 that Congress officially recognized it. On June 14, 1954, the phrase “under God” was added to the Pledge by an act of Congress.

When the Pledge of Allegiance is recited officially, people are to stand at attention and face the flag with their right hand over their hearts. Those in the military are to remain silent but face the flag and render a military salute.
