Brevard Chapter Society Sons of the American Revolution

President Joel EthertonThe National Society Sons of the American Revolution is celebrating 133+ years of service this year.  Headquartered in Louisville KY, S.A.R. is dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotic endeavor.   Most of the volunteer work of S.A.R. is accomplished under a committee system, sponsoring schools, scholarships, contests, and recognition for community service.  S.A.R. works to preserve our American heritage and supports current members and veterans of the military.  S.A.R. is non-political and does not lobby on the state or local level.

The Florida Society Sons of the American Revolution (FLSSAR) was organized in 1893.  Florida Sons are active in their communities preserving history, promoting education, and fostering patriotism.  Florida and Brevard Sons actively seek new members, working to assist prospective members with research into their family heritages.   Any Male 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for Regular membership. Those males under 18 can join as Junior Members. Currently there are 34 chapters with nearly 2,200 members. The FLSSAR is a not-for-profit 501.c.(3) corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Florida under the terms of a Certificate of Incorporation issued on March 9, 1972 by the Secretary of State of the State of Florida.

Florida Sons have placed historical markers, commemorating historical sites; they have helped preserve genealogical records and local histories in Florida.  Florida Sons have also helped commemorate historical events such as the Last Naval Battle of the American Revolution, the Battle of Pensacola, and the Battle of Thomas Creek.  Members work with schools to promote youth programs and scholarship opportunities through such programs as the S.A.R. Good Citizens recognition and scholarship for high school seniors, activities for children of all ages, and various poster and essay contests.  Individually and as chapters, Florida Sons volunteer in their communities and for VA Hospitals, supporting active duty military as well as veterans.   Membership in the Sons of the American Revolution gives males an opportunity to form lifelong friendships and provides a framework for activities that support the NSSAR.
