    It's up to the states what they want to do. Personally I don't support gay marriage for religious reasons, but don't oppose it either because America is not a theocracy and states have the rights to define marriage.

    Whoa there Chief:" I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    No, I got it exactly the way it was written in 1892 before the changes. The Chief's Mess was established on April 1, 1893. (Happy Birthday, brother). Therefore, the Original Mess would have recited it basically like that until the early 1920's.

    We still call it the Goat Locker. The Mess is more popular these days tho. There were also pregnant Chief's when you were still active duty. YNC Loretta Walsh was the first female Chief in 1917. I am sure a few managed to get pregnant in the 70 years before you retired. (I used to teach a CPO heritage class. I have a brain full of CPO trivia)

    My post was in response that the term "Republic" came about by radicals in 1969. We have been called a Republic for quite a bit longer than that.

    Under God was added in 1954 during the height of the Red Scare. So if you retired in 77, then I am guessing you graduated HS in 57 or so. So, when you learned the pledge, it did not have " under God" in it. It would have been adder about the 8th or 9th grade.

    If you retired in 77, chances where you were a kid before they added "Under God" to the pledge. Guess it really wasn't "before your time" old man.
