Arab Americans have been an integral part of the United States of America since its inception, contributing to our society in myriad ways, including public service.
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 history.
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, created by the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, also encourages visitors to consider how commitment to service impacts them in their daily lives.
