​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This year our Squadron will continue to support the Wreaths Across America Campaign.  Wreaths Across America focuses on three goals:


​​​   ▲  REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans. 
   ▲  HONOR those who serve.
   ▲  TEACH our children the value of freedom.


It is a nationwide program, through which, individuals can sponsor holiday wreaths to be laid on Veteran's graves at participating locations across the nation and abroad on National Wreaths Across America Day which is observed annually on the third Saturday in December (this year on December 18th). These wreaths serve as a small tribute to these men and women for their sacrifices made in defense of our freedom. Civil Air Patrol is a national partner of Wreaths Across America and assists in selling wreath sponsorships and placing them on veteran graves. 


Wreath sponsorships sold by our squadron specifically support this effort at the Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery. With every wreath sponsorship we sell, another wreath will be laid at Cheltenham. Additionally, $5 of each $15 wreath sponsorship is returned to our Squadron as a donation.  This year, we have set a goal of sponsoring 500 wreaths!  On National Wreaths Across America Day, December 18th, our Squadron will then assist in laying wreaths at Cheltenham and with the distribution of wreaths to other volunteers. 


We challenge each member to try and sell at least 10 wreath sponsorships.  The top cadet sponsors will receive a prize for their efforts.  Feel free to share with family members, friends, co-workers, etc!  Thank you in advance!
