A Message from our Commander

The Honorary First Defenders strives to perpetuate the memory of the First Defenders who defended our Capitol in 1861 and supports our local military reserve units.
Welcome to the HONORARY FIRST DEFENDERS, Allentown Chapter website. On this site you can find information about our organization. We dedicate ourselves to supporting the local military units in the Allentown and surrounding areas. There are many events throughout the year and you are invited to join us. On this site are sections which describe our history, heritage and patriotism, as well as our meeting dates, locations and upcoming events. We welcome you to contact us and become a part of our membership.
