Compatriots and Potential Members –

I am honored to have been selected to lead as President of the Mecklenburg Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution for 2024.

Knowing that every one of our members has lineage that has been traced back to an individual that in some way sacrificed in the creation of these United States of America, is amazing.

The SAR Pledge states, “We, descendants of the heroes of the American Revolution who, by their sacrifices, established the United States of America, reaffirm our faith in the principles of liberty and our Constitutional Republic, and solemnly pledge ourselves to defend them against every foe.”

The responsibility of SAR members is tremendous. In an environment where so many are devoted to the destruction of our history, we stand ready to defend it. We do this by promoting patriotism, serving our communities, and educating, and inspiring future generations about the founding principles of our Country. As we approach the 250th anniversary of our nation, it has never been more important.

If you are interested in joining this outstanding group we would love to help you. We have several members who are ready to work with you to assist in proving your lineage. Once your lineage is established you will belong to a distinct collection of individuals.  Membership is only the beginning though. It is the collective works and contributions of these individuals that make the SAR what it is today. Mecklenburg’s Chapter is rich in revolutionary knowledge, devoted to promoting our cause and steadfast in the defense of our nation’s foundational principles.

I sincerely hope that you will consider joining our organization and becoming an active member of our society.

In Liberty,

Frank H. Aikmus
