The values and benefits of joining SAR

SAR helps you to locate your patriot ancestor and to learn their historical story

SAR membership provides a platform to educate others on our history and the principals of our forefathers. SAR membership helps you to understand your responsibility as an American Citizen SAR helps you to discover your familys relationship to the founding of our nation SAR teaches you about patriotism

SAR will provide you an opportunity to honor your patriot ancestor SAR is a very prestigious organization that includes membership by 16 U.S. Presidents. Military Generals, Senators, Congressmen, Members of the U.S. Supreme Court and other prominent American dignitaries SAR members have pride in their heritage and a

connection with the spirit of our founding fathers What SAR means to me The SAR gives me a means to honor the sacrifices my ancestors made in order to establish this great nation. And it gives me an opportunity to carry forward the ideals upon which it was founded.

SAR membership is vital at this time in American history. The focus on political correctness and the de-emphasizing of the facts in American History in both our society and our schools is leading to a loss of respect and tradition for the American flag and Constitutional form of democratic government. My SAR membership constantly calls to my mind the

courage, the sense of duty and the participation by our early forebears in creating a nation which is now our responsibility to maintain on the foundations that they built. What SAR means to me In these most difficult times for our nation, all our citizens

must be mindful of our heritage and the basic principles under which America has grown to greatness and prospered in freedom. I am proud of my membership in the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution because of the important role the Society plays in strengthening and preserving the American ideal. The membership in the National Society, SAR, which I

have recently received, serves as a source of strength in these turbulent times. It provides an awareness of how this nation came to be, how it struggled for survival and to become free, how it grew to a position of world leadership, and the necessity of maintaining those qualities in our individual and national life if the United States is to continue to be the kind of nation we want it to be. As I

become older, I realize the importance of impressing these thoughts upon my five children.
