who we are and what we do

Remembering the Past


By honoring those who served in uniform or assisted the colonies during the Revolutionary War. 

We are Building the Future

We help in Shaping the Young


By educating our youth about the Constitution and those who developed our American ideals and traditions. And, by remembering all those who have fought and those who died for our freedoms.
