America Pin

This pin celebrates our nation’s rich history and diversity of experience by spelling "America" through the first letter of the crystal color: aquamarine, musgravite, emerald, ruby, iolite, ceylon sapphire, and aquamarine. ​The bow and ribbon represent the joy members receive through our DAR ties of service and friendship. In the wreath are crystals symbolizing victory in morse code with dot-dot-dot-dash to honor our military and veterans. The Victorian six-pointed star commemorates our founding in 1890.


national scripture

I Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

I Thessalonians 5:16
Rejoice Always
