Rhode Island daughters tirelessly support current military and veterans with a number of outreach efforts. We welcome back active duty service men and women, present excellence awards to outstanding ROTC graduates. We sent greeting cards and hundreds of hand-sewn masks to VA hospitals during the pandemic. We clip coupons and organize book drives for military families, and we decorate veterans graves on Veterans Day.
Daughters express their joyful patriotism in many additional ways, from welcoming new citizens at swearing-in ceremonies, commemorating important local battles such as the Battle of Rhode Island, and presenting DAR Good Citizen awards.
