Music composed and set for Mixed Chorus and Concert Band by Chief Master Sgt. (Retired) Floyd Werle

The Pledge Of Allegiance, taught to millions of young Americans annually, has been attributed to an American by the name of Francis Bellamy. The text first appeared in 1892, in a book titled "The Youth's Companion". As the result of an initiative by a pastor from Washington D.C.'s New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, the words "under god" were added to the text by act of Congress in 1954.
