As SAR members approach the beginning of the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution period, now is the time to make preparation for being in the eye of the public.
To get beyond slogans, the SAR must use the best tool they have: the Color Guard. The guard can and should be the personification of our patriots, and the ideals embraced by the SAR. Beyond any sense of pride, going into the public in uniform should be honorable and a humbling experience every time. But most important is the opportunity to share history with the public, carry out the SAR mission, and hopefully impart a sense of importance, perhaps urgency, in the public to hold dear what they learn and be willing in this time to treasure what’s been given to them.
