"For God and County, We associate ourselves together for the following purposes:
To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
To maintain law and order to foster and perpetuate
A one hundred percent Americanism; To preserve the memories and incidents
Of our associations in the Great Wars; To inculcate a sense of individual obligation
To the community, state and nation; To combat the autocracy
Of both the classes and the masses; To make right the master of might;
To promote peace and good will on earth; To safeguard and transmit to posterity
The principles of Justice, Freedom and Democracy;
To consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness."
