    What Our Members Say

    “The SAR means so many things to me. Obviously, it is chance to remember and honor my ancestors and those like them that gave birth to the greatest nation ever. Secondly, it gives me and my 11 year old son Mercator (an SAR Junior member) the opportunity to make and share great memories. This is important as…an SAR activity gives us a great "guys' day" activity. Mercator is well on his way to earning his Patriot Graves Medal (we think he will be the youngest in the organization to have it bestowed on him). He is always ready to kit up and participate with the Color Guard in parades as needed. It is an opportunity for me to make sure he learns to respect his heritage and learn about our history. His fifth grade class and teacher were quite impressed with his knowledge and activities with the SAR while studying the American Revolution this year.”
