Twelve members of the Yavapai chapter Daughters of the American Revolution marched in the Prescott Veterans Day Parade on Friday, Nov. 11. The chapter has celebrated veterans throughout its 35-year history. Two of the chapter members are military veterans.
Yavapai Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution ALWAYS honor the military, from the past, present and future, as one of its prime objectives. They send boxes filled with goodies, encouragement, hope and cheer to deployed female service members. During the Christmas holidays, they participate at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital by giving gifts to both the men and women veterans living in the domiciliary. They honor deceased veterans with Wreaths Across America. Along with entirely sponsoring seven airline flights of 30 veterans each to Washington, D.C., with Honor Flight AZ, they also provide scarfs, gloves, hats and magazines for these veterans. The chapter also honors each of the Revolutionary War patriots that are direct ancestors of the individual members.
