Mississippi Society, Sons of the American Revolution
Compatriots and visitors to the Mississippi Society of the Sons of the American Revolution!
As President of the Mississippi Society, I extend to you a personal thank you for visiting the MSSSAR website. I trust this means you have an interest in our patriotic heritage and in the history of the United States. It is a great honor for me to serve as President of the MSSSAR. I am glad to be a member of an organization that strives to preserve and teach our nation’s history, promote patriotism, and honor our ancestors who sacrificed so much for the cause of freedom.
On March 25 - 26, 2022, the 113th Annual Convention of the Mississippi Society was held in Oxford, MS. It was obvious, as we navigate a world that is regrouping from the pandemic, that the Sons of the American Revolution in Mississippi has continued to be active through this difficult time; thus, proving that patriotism, education, and the preservation of history and heritage are timeless and enduring principles.
As we move forward through my tenure as president, I have some goals for our society. These goals can be remembered by focusing attention on the beautiful, new Mississippi medal, which contains a blue ribbon with a five-pointed white star in the center. Focusing on the star, the theme of my tenure as president is “Stars Over Mississippi.” It is my desire that every member of the MSSSAR will be wearing one of the Mississippi medals before the year is over. The goals I have for our society form an acrostic — S.T.A.R.S.
