Chris Lambert, Jr.
Military Order of Purple Heart

Chris Lambert Jr. was born in Enid, Oklahoma in 1949. His father, Chris Sr. (deceased), was a Marine Drill instructor and a combat-wounded WWII Veteran. Chris continued the family military tradition and joined the USMC in August of 1967 after graduating from Santa Monica High School. Chris is the recipient of three Purple Hearts while assigned to Alpha Co, 1/5 rifle platoon in the Republic of Vietnam. Two of his three Purple Hearts were received during the same lengthy firefight at Troui River Bridge with the first wound on 3/31, and the second 4/1/68. Other major battles included Hue City, Operation Huston I and II, and Baxter Garden.

Chris is happily married to wife and best friend, Susan. Her father, Norman Crowther (also deceased), was a Marine Veteran of Guadalcanal, and many other South Pacific battles during World War II. Chris and Susan have four grown children (two daughters and two sons, one an Army veteran of the Afghanistan War), and are enjoying six grandchildren as well. Currently Chris is the chaplain for the Folsom California Chapter 385 of the Military Order of Purple Heart, a Mather VA Chaplain's Office Volunteer, and is involved with a variety of 12 step programs for the past three and a half decades. The focus of his efforts is on helping returning veterans with combat related issues while maintaining a sober Christian life.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
