We are two teachers from Texas, Tom Yeats and Eric Blaylock. Tom is the visionary that realized the need and conceptualized a solution to the problem of patriotism among our school age children. He has been teaching for 20 years and was a full time youth pastor for 15 years. I was fortunate enough to meet Tom during my first year at school and quickly realized there was a strong connection both in personality and belief that we could make a difference in our youth. I am a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant with 23 years of service and 5 years of teaching. I have recently completed my Master’s Degree in education administration with the intent of pursuing a career in education administration.
Our non profit organization is Patriotic Restoration and our goal is to improve patriotism in America’s youth. As a retired Marine and current teacher, the task of restoring patriotism is one that touched our hearts and we are in need of fellow Americans to accomplish this goal.
We intend to do this by:
- Providing video/audio testimonials to use when reciting the pledge of allegiance to the National flag
- These recordings will be made by service members and patriots and include a statement about what it means to be an American, Serviceman, patriot etc..
- These videos will be made available to public/private/home schools, youth organizations, civic/service organizations and church related organizations throughout the nation at no cost.
Tom and Eric have seen firsthand the lack of patriotism in classrooms, we have also been blessed with the vision, and skills necessary to help improve this deficit. We believe through this effort we can make a difference in our schools and help servicemembers who need assistance by contributing to various military non-profit organizations.
