Proud to be a SAR
I am proud to be able to say that I am now a SAR - Son of the American Revolution.
I have a proven bloodline that traces back to a Patriot who was involved in the American Revolution.
I have to thank my Uncle for digging this up, and submitting me for membership. I admit that if he hadn't pursued it as part of his fascination with geneaology, I would have never known about it.
I have to also thank that relative from long ago, whose name I had never heard until recently, who lived in Virginia. Thanks to you, I have a tangible link to the struggle that gave birth to this nation. That is kind of humbling ... I must say.
Does this make me any better than anyone else? Oh, hell no. But it does make me proud!
