Support YOUR country and the fight against terrorism.. Here is how you can help!!
- Hi Folks,
I am a member of the DAR (Daughters of American Revolution) this is our
project but ANYONE can participate, I hope you will!
God Bless America!!
Announcing "PROJECT PATRIOT"
"Project Patriot" is the official national DAR project to show support for
the worldwide war against terrorism.
All of us watched TV helplessly on that now infamous day, 9-11, as airplanes
flew into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and then witnessed the
Pennsylvania crash scene of the fourth hijacked plane. As we watched, we
wondered what we could do to help in the defense of our country and this new
war waged by fanatical terrorists against the very freedoms our
Revolutionary ancestors fought for. During the months since September 11,
the DAR has been working with the Navy Department on a project that all DAR
members, school children and the public can participate in to express our
love of country, patriotic spirit and support for our military. As
President Bush said at the reopening in D.C. of Reagan National Airport: "We
got struck on September 11, but you can't strike the American Spirit."
Now there is a way that each of us can help spread the American Spirit and
do our part to support the war against terrorism by sending "thank you
cards" and "DAR care packages" to the 5,100 men and women serving our
country on deployment with the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis in the
North Arabian Sea.
The Department of the Navy has authorized DAR to "adopt" the nuclear
aircraft carrier, USS JOHN C. STENNIS (CVN 74) and its embarked Air Wing.
Convey your appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our dedicated men
and women in uniform by participating in "PROJECT PATRIOT".
