One Nation Under God in Pledge of Allegiance Since 1954


The Dec. 17, 2015 issue of the Pathfinder contained a letter from Larry Dillree. While I don’t agree with everything that is contained in that letter, I know Mr. Dillree to be a good man.

It appears that Larry has a false memory (as we all do occasionally). He recalls reciting the Pledge of Allegiance (one nation under God) for the eight years he attended the grade school in Ovando. He states that he graduated in 1955.

Since the phrase “one nation under God” did not enter the pledge until 1954 it appears that he recited the pledge without that phrase for seven years.
