This is a very important and worthwhile project that the entire Legion family should be involved with. Through this program we honor our fallen heroes, veterans that have passed on to Post Everlasting and we support our wounded warriors through a donation to the Comfort Warrior program which comes from the Commander's Project.
- If every Legion Post, SAL Squadron, Auxiliary Unit, ALR Chapter and District organization sponsors 10 wreaths, that would equate to 5,470 wreaths.
- The rebate for 5,470 wreaths would be $27,350!
This would go a long way to helping our wounded warriors! This year we are supporting wreaths being placed at the following cemeteries: Georgia National Cemetery; Marietta National Cemetery; Georgia War Memorial Cemetery-Milledgeville; Georgia War Memorial Cemetery- Glenville; Andersonville National Cemetery; Chattanooga National Cemetery.
Please go to https://wreaths.fastport.com/donateLocation.html?page=18129&relate=14805 to make your donation on line. Just select the cemetery you wish your wreaths to be placed at.
We also have downloadable PDF's if you don't want to donate online. Here are the links: http://dogalr.org/files/WAA_2016_Andersonville_(2)_(1).pdf;
The State House ceremony will be held at Post 127 Buford on Monday December 12 at 11:30 AM.
Wreath laying at all cemeteries will be on Saturday December 17. Check at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org for start times and instructions at your specific cemetery.
