About DAR

NSDAR Objectives:

  •     Historic: "To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence."
  •     Educational: to carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people, "to promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge, thus developing an enlightened public opinion…"
  •     Patriotic: "To cherish, maintain, and extend the institutions of American freedom; to foster true patriotism and love of country."

The American's Creed
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

National Scriptures:

The President General has selected two scriptures to guide and encourage us throughout the 2016 – 2019 Administration:

Jeremiah 6:16 (NIV)  “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Proverbs 3:5-6  (NIV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
