Honors and awards

Daughters of the American Revolution Medal of Patriotism award ceremony.

"I am very honored to be given such a great award. I don’t know if I am deserving of it. If you compare me to the men and women who are in the pit of hell and fighting for the freedoms we hold dear, it is easy to see there are those more deserving than me of a patriot award. However if this award means that I love my country and I never miss an opportunity to show that love in my actions, especially where our troops are concerned, then I accept this award on behalf of all patriots."
