OPERATION PATRIOTISM Operation Patriotism is a program designed to support and promote a nationwide policy of Americanism and an endeavor to motivate a spirit of love and appreciation for God and country. To ensure its successful existence, it is essential that each chapter strive to establish and maintain a spirit of comradeship and esprit de corps among its members. This achievement is enhanced by activities such as the Pledge of Allegiance and moments of silence or oral meditation. Manifestation of this attitude should not be confined to chapter meetings or unit training assemblies, but prevail on all occasions. This can be accomplished through going to schools and giving patriotic speeches and patriotic assistance, presenting historical flag ceremonies, and Color Guards for parades, opening ceremonies, etc.
Awards presented at Seminar 41 (July, 2009) in the Operation Patriotism category include:
CIVIC ACTIVITIES Community and civic action are programs designed to provide a helpful service or assistance to the civilian community. Chapters can accomplish this with a little initiative, leadership, and a desire to let the community know who you are. In developing a program of community service and betterment, chapters should avoid duplicating efforts of competing organizations. Chapters should also be realistic about undertaking activities too costly or too difficult to complete. Chapters develop and sponsor programs or assist in programs that will contribute to their local communities, such as food drives, blood drives, clothing drives, tours of base facilities, anti-litter campaigns, school adoption programs, and bike-a-thons.
