The Patriotic Order Sons of America founded in 1847 is one of America's oldest patriotic and fraternal societies still in existence. We invite all native-born or naturalized American male citizens, 16 years and older, who believe in their country and its institutions, who desire to perpetuate free government, and who wish to encourage a brotherly feeling among Americans, to the end that we may exalt our country, to join with us in our work of fellowship and love.
The Patriotic Order Sons of America was organized December 10, 1847 to preserve the Public School System, The Constitution of the United States, and our American way of life. It was incorporated by an Act of the Pennsylvania State Legislature, February 27, 1867.
"Next to love for the Creator, we believe that Patriotism is one of the
highest and noblest affections of the human soul."
Our Motto: God, Our Country, Our Order

Mission Statement of the Patriotic Order Sons of America:
We support and pledge to defend the Constitution of the United States and the rights of every citizen to enjoy the liberties set forth in that document. To that end, we encourage the preservation of historic landmarks for the benefit of present and future patriots, so that they may never forget the sacrifices of our founding fathers and the patriots who continue to serve and defend this great nation. We also support the education of all citizens and teach respect and proper care of the American Flag.
The Patriotic Order Sons of America have presented American Flags to the Park Rangers At Valley Forge National Park for more than 65 years. The Order has been part of the Park since the start of Valley Forge and helped to save Washington's Headquarters.
