AHG Patriotism in Action

It was great to be part of this National patriot American Heritage Girls event
AHG honored those who made our freedom possible @ Arlington National Cemetery.
AHG celebrated the 4th of July following
our 2014 National Leadership Conference, in Centerville VA.
Stars and Stripes Award recipient Marta Tverberg laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, June 29 at Arlington National Cemetery.

Immediately following the wreath-laying ceremony, the first AHG National Choir performed patriotic songs at the Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Amphitheater. More than 50 girls from across the nation including Alaska and Hawaii participated in the historic event.
