The WSSDAR has been true to the precepts of the National Society of God, Home, and Country; and to our own State Society of Patriotism, Reverence, and Remembrance. We have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of military members at home and deployed, and to the veterans we honor in so many of our activities. Thousands of dollars of goods have been donated and sent abroad to support our troops. In addition, the WSSDAR chapters contribute annually to Wreaths Across America.
DAR members’ love of country is evident in the multitude of patriotic endeavors they pursue, including:
