We began with a smaller
website and as a tribute to those US Navy sailors who perished
in Typhoon Cobra 18 December 1944. Soon after the site went
live, we began hearing from their families and some of the
survivors too. It was an amazing journey for me as your
webmaster. My father, a man I never knew, had clung to the one
and only life raft with thirteen other sailors before the he
slipped away to a watery grave.
From that humble
beginning, our website grew and attracted patriots here in
Sacramento who wanted to do more than have a "Support Our
Troops" bumper sticker on their car. When September 11, 2001
touched our hearts and souls we were called on to defend
patriots wherever they served. Our first organized event had
modest expectations. A handful of volunteers hoped for a turnout
of 100 to 200 people on the west steps of the state capitol. At
its peak, 5,000 participants cheered America's finest and their
families here at home. Patriotwatch.com was born. Along the way,
we've had a lot of help and that's why we created the Hall of
Americans are amazing!In
these simple pages are the stories of ordinary people who've
done extraordinary things. Some are selfless acts, many
are creative and inspiring!
Corporate Responsibility is more than a buzz word to those
featured in this section. In one way or another, they have
led by example. We hope in recognizing them, others will
follow suit in their own community.
They not only wear their uniforms with pride and dignity,
they go above and beyond. Some have made the ultimate
sacrifice. Some have served then returned to serve at home.
