The Miriam Benedict Chapter NSDAR established the printing of American Flags with each veteran obituary in the local newspaper. August 20, 2012, the local newspaper, the La Porte County Herald-Argus, began printing American flags with each veteran's obituary for La Porte County, Indiana.
Members of the Miriam Benedict Chapter, Becky Werner, Janet Peterson, and Jane Adams, had the privilege of volunteering for The American Veterans Traveling Tribute, AVTT, which presents a comprehensive Cost of Freedom Tribute. The exhibit includes numerous memorials and exhibits, the centerpiece being the Traveling Wall, an 80 percent scale version of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D. C. Across its 360-foot length, the Wall lists the names of every American casualty from the war, etched on its surface, just as the original. AVTT is also the only tribute event which includes the one of a kind Gold Dog Tag display representing the fallen from the Global War on Terror.
