Part of the Sons of the American Revolution's charter is to recognize ordinary citizens who have accomplished extraordinary things in our community. One of the ways we do this is by awarding medals for various forms of public service--good citizenship. There are six medals awarded to adults by the SAR. The Law Enforcement, Fire safety, EMS, Heroism and Life Saving Medals all have narrowly defined criteria.
The Good Citizenship Medal is designed to recognize anyone that makes the community better, anyone who goes beyond themselves to serve others in their neighborhood without regard for monetary or other reward. Someone whom you admire and and would like to see them thanked publicly for the good they have done over the long term.
Please review the criteria for each medal below. If you feel you know someone who qualifies, take the time to nominate that individual. There is absolutely no cost to the recipent of an award.
