Toasts (Patriotic)

The American Navy: May it ever sail on a sea of glory.

Columbia: My country—with all thy faults, I love thee still.

Our Country: May she always be in the right—but our country, right or wrong.

Our Native Land: May it ever be worthy of our heartiest love.

The Nation: May there be no north, no south, no east, no west, but only one broad, beautiful, glorious land.

We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.


Here’s to American valor: May no war require it, but may it ever be ready for every foe.

May the joys of America be as pure as its air of freedom, and its virtues be as firm as its mountains.

Our President: May he always merit the esteem and affection of a people ever ready to bestow gratitude on those who deserve it.
