"To you is given the spiritual leadership of ths Post. You will, I know, lend dignity
and respect to your office. You should be in close confidence with the commander and the other officers of this Post,
and should attend all meetings of the Post. You should be ready upon occasion to take your part in the initiation of
new members, the dedication of halls, monuments of colors, and the funeral services for a comrade. All such ceremonies
are made more commenorative by the use of our ritual. Into your keeping we place the spirit of comradeship of this Post.
May harmony and unity prevail."
