Oaths & Pledges - Government

"Neither snow, nor rain..." - The postal pledge dates back to Herodotus (484-425 B.C.) who said: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat nor gloom of night stays these Couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

John Ratzenberger as Cliff Claven - CHEERS

The Postal Carrier oath was often mentioned by Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger), the verbose Boston postal carrier from the sitcom CHEERS/NBC/1982-93 who devoted his life's work to upholding the principles of the oath in between sipping beers at Cheers, his favorite tavern hangout.
