Love of Country is simply giving back to the Nation and people that bless us with freedom and opportunity.  Many people mock this as mere sentiment... but not Veterans.  No group has given more to protect and preserve the freedoms we enjoy.  Americanism is love of country expressed in feelings, words, and deeds.  We hope you will participate in our programs that unashamedly promote Americanism!
