The Jonathan Dayton Chapter is involved in numerous DAR projects and community activities.  Our eclectic group of members are dedicated to the goals and objectives set forth by the national and state societies  as well as our own chapter. We meet monthly, except the summer months, and enjoy our variety of speakers and programs.  We are partners of The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, support Project Patriot, support the local Children of the American Revolution Chapter, Celebrate America! and units overseas. Being located close to Wright Patterson Air Force Base and the Dayton Veterans Affairs allows our chapter the unique ability to support our soldiers, past and present.
