Itís been four years in the making...the most significant exhibition ever created by the Arab American National Museum. Patriots & Peacemakers: Arab Americans in Service to Our Country tells true stories of heroism and self-sacrifice that affirm the important role Arab Americans have played in our country throughout its history.

Arab Americans have been an integral part of the United States of America since its inception. They have contributed greatly to our society and since the American Revolution, they have fought and died in every U.S. war, defending the Constitution and our democratic form of government.

Patriots & Peacemakers highlights three specific areas of service: the U.S. Armed Forces, diplomatic service and the Peace Corps. Personal narratives highlight Arab American men and women of different national and religious backgrounds.

The exhibition also encourages visitors to consider how commitment to service impacts them in their daily lives.
