The Patriotic Outreach Committee fosters cooperative arrangements with patriotic organizations such as the American Legion and the U.S.O., as well as patriotic programs such as Wreaths Across America, Blue Star Salute, etc.

Partners in Patriotism

The Partners in Patriotism certificate is awarded by the Patriotic Outreach Committee to any SAR chapter or state-level society that participates in an organized program or event with another veterans’ organization. In order to receive this recognition, the chapter or state-level society must submit a Partners in Patriotism Report to the Patriotic Outreach Committee Chairman, Mr. Tony L. Vets II. Upon approval, the certificate will be handed out to a member of the state-level society at the next annual SAR Congress. The Daughters of the American Revolution is not considered a veterans organization.

American Legion Boys State

Every year, the American Legion selects outstanding young men to participate in the prestigious American Legion Boys State program. The Patriotic Outreach Committee encourages SAR chapters and state-level societies to contact their local American Legion posts and sponsor one or more of the young men chosen to participate in this highly educational, government instruction program. The cost is reportedly at around $300 per individual, though details may vary by location or situation. SAR chapters and state-level societies which sponsor a young man qualify for the Partners in Patriotism certificate. The committee suggests that two or more SAR chapters cooperate and coordinate efforts to sponsor a Boys State participant. Each SAR chapter will receive credit.

Wreaths Across America

The Patriotic Outreach Committee encourages all SAR chapters and state-level societies to participate in the Wreaths Across America program by purchasing wreaths and laying them on the graves of veterans. Chapters and state-level societies that participate in Wreaths Across America will be recognized by the Patriotic Outreach Committee with a certificate.
