National Defense Directorate
It is time to put your skills to work in ultimate service of this great nation, to fight the forces that are trying to subvert our way of life. It is time for you to take on a supreme responsibility, to become part of the unseen hand that guides America’s destiny. I pray that each of you will accept this burden of silence, and bear it with pride and honor, secure in the fellowship of the Directorate.
Now repeat after me. My first loyalty is to the Directorate and, through it, the United States of America. I will follow the orders of his superiors without exception or question. I will maintain the confidentiality of the mission and the Directorate at all costs. I am always prepared to sacrifice all for the cause of the Directorate. I must protect the interests of the United States of America and its citizens.

Note: All NDD operatives are under constant surveillance, generally for the purpose of maintaining NDD security; however, no aspect of any operative’s life can be considered to be secret. If any activity on the operative’s part is perceived and reported as suspicious, he has a chance of being investigated by the DSS within three days of the activity. In such cases, the individual is usually turned over to an internal security agent for debriefing.
