Great American Patriots|
January 21, 2008
USA Patriotism! (https://www.usapatriotism.org)
would like to announce ... Great American Patriots (https://www.usapatriotism.org/gap/)
... that honors past and present Americans who continually exhibited a
love and pride of the USA through patriotic efforts that have
contributed significantly to the good of our beloved, great country.
David Bancroft, founder and owner of USA Patriotism!, explains...
"Since founding USA Patriotism! in 2002, I have become very aware of
many fellow Americans who have done and are doing so many wonderful
things in support of the troops and other noble patriotic efforts . . .
with most being unknown to the overwhelming majority of their fellow
In fact, only a handful ever receive notice by the media . . . and that
is primarily due to their celebrity status, which is what they should be
doing to spread the word of their patriotic endeavors.
And all of these rare, exceptional individuals, who are selected by
fellow American patriots, have done so relative to individual means and
ability without concern for status and popularity, regardless of the
fame already achieved elsewhere . . . They are / were relentlessly
committed in achieving the mission of their respective patriotic efforts
. . . just like many of America's Founding Fathers were . . . earning
them the right to be called a Great American Patriot! And an inspiration
to fellow generations.
And the first five honorees are... Bob Hope, Clara Barton, Gary Sinise,
Joseph Jacob Foss, and Wayne Newton.
I know some might wonder why these five for the first Great American
Patriots . . . I can only respond that they deserve it . . . and
nominate others who you believe should also be honored.
I would also like to stress that just being a leader, celebrity, or one
who performed an act of memorable heroism is not enough to be honored as
a Great American Patriot. . . Yes, each one of those just mentioned is a
patriot, but it is about the patriotic efforts done over a period of
time . . . and again it is not about how famous one is either.”
USA Patriotism! is a non-political, patriotic showcase with a mission to
