As you know, Patrick Henry Chapter and Alexander Hamilton Chapter have sponsored a successful Operation Ancestor Search program at Ft. Hood for the Wounded Warriors.  We have operated since the late Fall of 2015 and have served 156 wounded warriors in that time.
We have expanded our OAS program to the Veterans Hospital at Temple, TX.  We opened last month and have been very successful.  There are four volunteers for each meeting.  This operation is supported by the Ensign Thomas Huling Chapter, NSDAR. We are on schedule for two meetings per month. 
To volunteer, please check out our calendar or reach out to Jeff Gammon for more details!

Museum of the Revolution Opening!

Compatriots and Friends!

The Museum of the American Revolution is opening April 19, 2017 in Philadelphia.  From the looks of the website there will be plenty to see, including George Washington’sHQ Tent.  Hopefully they will continue to put some high-resolution images of some of their holdings for those of us that can’t go right away.
