About Our Chapter

2014 was a “breakthrough” year for the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter!

We have come a very long way since the launching of our chapter in 2012!  As we participated in our community in various ways, our reputation and respect for our organization have grown significantly in Trigg County and beyond. And all the while we continued to experience steady and significant numerical growth.

On January 1, 2015, we submitted our two main reports for the year to the Kentucky Society. These reports indicated that our chapter grew by an incredible 127% in 2014 (19 new members) and logged what just might be be an SAR record 20,349 Americanism points!

As we begin a new year, we are embarking upon the following chapter goals:

  • “50 in 2015!” – This is our membership goal, to break through the 50 barrier in chapter membership. We currently stand at 34 members. We will need to recruit 16 more by the end of 2015. Start now to reach out to family members and friends. (We already have one submitted and two more in process … so we’re on our way!)
  • “Valor on Display” – This is our veteran’s recognition initiative for 2015. It will be a multi-pronged effort to honor veterans throughout our area. Of particular importance will be our discover and recognition of World War II veterans (this generation is rapidly dwindling), as well as hosting two Vietnam War recognition events in 2015.
  • Service to Veterans Reporting – We are keeping records for every Compatriot in pursuance of the Service to Veterans Medal. This is a very important and prestigious recognition in our organization. We need to keep better records and take credit for the service we are rendering. We need every single Compatriot to keep and submit records of their service to veterans on a monthly basis. A copy of the monthly report is included in this newsletter.
  • Grave Markings – We anticipate that we will host at least six grave markings in 2015. We also want to encourage Compatriots to participate in the ceremonies hosted by other chapters throughout the Commonwealth, as well as nearby in Tennessee. We should have AT LEAST six more compatriots who earn the Grave Marking Medal by the end of 2015!
