The United States Oath of Citizenship

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance
and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I
have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution
and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I
will
bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the
United States when required by law; that
I will perform noncombatant service in the
Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that
I will perform work of
national importance
under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this
obligation freely
without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
