Primary Purposes

  1. Writes and publishes Patriotism in Action by Dr. David Dyson and Col. “Stretch” Dunn (USA Ret), and provides printed materials for educators, students, veterans, and other patriots on how Veterans Day started in Alabama plus more patriotic guide content. On the cover of the book, President Reagan pins the Presidential Citizens Medal on Raymond Weeks of Alabama honoring him as the "driving force" for establishing America's Veterans Day. 
  2. Sponsors programs designed to promote true patriotism and professionalism-- Personal Leadership for Patriots and the Tribute to the Founder of Veterans Day at the Raymond Weeks Monument--organized by Col. Bob (Ret) and Nancy Barefield with Dr. Dyson as emcee.
  3. Leads America's National Veterans Day Founding Education to educate America on who, how, and why Veterans Day was founded and the educational character traits supported--patriotism, courage, perseverance, loyalty, citizenship, plus five more we recommend: freedom, peace, honor, trust, and leadership.
The book, Patriotism In Action, serves as a patriotic guide for teachers, students, veterans, and other patriots, plus as a resource for the nation's oldest Veterans Day. The book is presented to the National Veteran Award honoree and guest speakers from national organizations. Posters are displayed in schools, city halls, tourism centers, and veterans chapters by patriots reminding Veterans Day started here, it's significance to students, and why we lead.
