Love of Country

For over 125 years, the NSDAR has carried the torch of patriotism. Love of country was the purpose; ancestors who fought for freedom was the bond that connected women to unite to form an organization that honored heritage and worked to ensure a bright future for our children. Patriotism is the foundation of the many DAR activities that take place in local communities across the country.

Supporting Our Military

New Hampshire daughters are active in supporting our active-duty military and veterans through a variety of service projects. Volunteers collect items for local Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals and for those serving overseas. Daughters volunteer as "Pease Greeters", welcoming home troops who pass through New Hampshire and greet our veterans who participate in the Honor Flight Network.

New Hampshire DAR is proud to be a member of the Vietnam War Commemoration and of our own Fallen Heroes Moving Wall. This nine-panel display honors the 228 New Hampshire service men and women who lost their lives in Vietnam.

Nationally, NSDAR provides a variety of support for our military and veterans. Click here for more information.

Patriotic Awards

NSDAR recognizes American citizens for their outstanding contributions to the nation and New Hampshire is no exception. NHSODAR annually presents the Outstanding Veteran Volunteer, Outstanding Youth Volunteer, and Outstanding DAR Service for Veterans Awards at our spring conference.

ROTC Medals are awarded to student cadets of outstanding ability and achievement in high school, junior college, college, or university ROTC programs of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. DAR Outstanding Cadet Medals are awarded to student cadets who distinguish themselves through outstanding leadership, honor, courage, service and patriotism in non-ROTC, military-affiliated cadet programs funded by schools or privately, including but not limited to Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Civil Air Patrol Cadet Corps.
