       This chapter was originally founded on 03 April 1964 as the Colonial Patriots Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution. After Hurricane Katrina, compatriot Lynam was one of the few remaining members in this chapter.

He was instrumental in the survival of the chapter and on 19 March 2019, the chapter was renamed in his honor.
