Here I am wearing my formal Children of the American Revolution Senior State Society Ribbon.  I was the Senior State President of Colorado for the C.A.R. from 1992-1996.  I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).  The DAR is the oldest and richest women's organization in the USA.  In order to be long to the DAR, one must prove direct blood lineage to the American Patriot that served in the American Revolutionary War.  My ancestor was a 14 year old drummer boy.  He was very brave.
