On June 27th 2015, Lee was honored by one of the active, pro-patriotism organizations in the U.S, The Daughters of the American Revolution. Each year, they choose 2 recipients of their esteemed Medal of Honor Award, and Lee was one their 2015 honorees.
We’re grateful for the work and enduring leadership that DAR fulfills as they remind us of the price of freedom that all Americans enjoy. Please celebrate with us!
