OBLIGATION
In the presence of Almighty God, I do, of my own free will and accord,
solemnly promise and declare that:

I will bear true allegiance -- to the Constitution of the United States of
America -- and I will always be loyal thereto.

I do further solemnly promise and declare -- that I will comply with the
    Congressional Charter, By-Laws and Ritual of this order -- and I will
always be loyal thereto -- that I will never wrong or defraud this
organization -- nor a member thereof -- nor permit any wrong to be done
to either -- if in my power to prevent it.
    I will never propose for membership -- any person not eligible --
according to our Congressional Charter -- nor one whom I know to be
unworthy.
    I will never make known to anyone -- not authorized to receive it --
any of the work of this order.
    Should my affiliation -- with the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the
United States -- cease in any way -- I will consider this pledge
-- as binding outside of the order -- as though I had remained
a member of same.
    All this I promise and pledge -- upon the honor of a true comrade --
and a citizen of our great republic.

Signed:_____________________________________Applicant
