The Sons of the American Revolution recognizes that our communities are served and protected by these dedicated public servants 24 hours a day and seven days a week. This dedication to public service, safety, and professionalism should not go unnoticed by the citizens of our communities. While we sleep tonight, community public servants are working to ensure that we are; safe, awaiting our calls for help, and striving to make our communities a better place to live. We owe them our sincere thanks.
