    National Write Your Congressman Donates Educational Materials for Students to Orange Field of Valor

    Dallas – Nov. 7, 2016 – National Write Your Congressman (NWYC), an organization that gives 
    small businesses a voice in American government, is donating 1,600 educational books about 
    American government and civic engagement to fifth through eighth grade students who will be 
    visiting the  2016  Orange  Field  of  Valor. As  the  nation’s  largest,  privately  held,  nonpartisan 
    membership organization made up of small businesses, NWYC is dedicated to the delivery of 
    constituent information to representatives in Washington.


    “We are excited to be able to provide high-quality educational materials from NWYC to students 
    visiting  the 2016 Orange Field  of  Valor,”  said  Gary  Remland, President  of  the  Community 
    Foundation of Orange, president and owner of Remland Insurance and NWYC member. “Field 
    of  Valor  gives  the  community  the  opportunity  to  not  only  honor all veterans  and active duty 
    military personnel for their service, but educate the next generation of voters.”


    This year, the 2016 Orange Field of Valor is hosting local student groups to educate them on
    the importance of active engagement with their government. The students will receive America’s
    Legacy,  a  36-page  book  produced  by  Student  Governmental  Affairs  Program  (SGAP),  a 
    nonprofit  organization  established  by  NWYC  that  provides  instructional  materials  to 
    approximately 200,000 students across the U.S. each year. Materials are factual, nonpartisan, 
    non-political and content appropriate for teenagers.


    “NWYC is proud to partner with Gary Remland and the Orange Field of Valor to honor veterans 
    and those currently serving our country, as well as providing educational materials to our future 
    leaders,”  said  Randy  Ford,  president  of  NWYC and president and co-founder  of  SGAP.  “The 
    future  of  our  nation depends  on  our  youth  and NWYC is  committed  to  providing  educational 
    materials to teach students about all facets of government.”


    The  2016  Orange  Field  of  Valor  is  a  patriotic  tribute  honoring  all  Veterans  and  Active  Duty 
    Military  personnel  for  their  dedication  and  service to  our  nation. More  than  1,700 flags  will 
    proudly be displayed, each dedicated in honor of a friend or family member.


    Students visiting the 2016 Orange Field of Valor will get to see a presentation on the history of 
    the American flag and the many forms it has taken since the founding of our country.
