The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic organization that focuses on the American Revolution. As a part of our educational outreach, the SAR conducts several programs across the country. Some of our most active programs are targeted to our future leaders, our children and those who are educators. Below you will find a list of the programs that the NESSAR participates in, and a brief description of each. Click on the programs title to learn more about that particular program.
ROTC/JROTC Recognition Program
The SAR awards the ROTC Medal to foster the principle of the “citizen-soldier”, exemplified by the Minutemen of Revolutionary War days. This award is presented by a Chapter, a State Society, or the National Society to ROTC or JROTC cadets who are selected for having a high degree of merit with respect to leadership qualities, military bearing and general excellence.
