Wreaths Across America

email header

Compatriot,This week I learned something surprising, and I wanted to bring it to your attention.The numbers for Wreaths Across America (wreaths to be placed on veterans’ headstones) are up 18% overall this year, but we are still far from reaching our goal for Oakwood Cemetery, Confederate Section, Richmond, Virginia.

If we do not reach our goal it is possible that on National Wreaths Across America Day we are going to have volunteers but not enough wreaths to go around, which will be a great disappointment for a lot of people.

I want to make sure everyone has a chance to experience that solemn moment of tribute, appreciation and honor that has come to mean so much to so many. We don’t want to discourage people from coming to volunteer, but I’m asking for your help in getting the word out so more people will sponsor a wreath.

Every $15 places 1 wreath on a veteran’s headstone.

$60 represents a family sponsorship of 4 wreaths.

A company or corporation can contribute $150, $1500, or more.

Go to http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/ and click Sponsor For a Specific Location under the Store tab. Enter Virginia as the state or 23231 as the zip code and select Search. Scroll down the list and select Oakwood Cemetery.

If prompted, our Location ID is VAOWCR and our Group ID is VA0137P.

 We will also accept sponsorship monies at our November 5th Fire Eater Camp meeting and complete the process at that time.

A portion of the sponsorship monies will be used to fund the Edmund Ruffin Fire Eaters Camp #3000 Sons of Confederate Veterans initiative to fund grave markers and Wounded Warrior projects. All donations are tax deductible.

Many people ask  – why wreaths during the holidays when there are so many living veterans with needs. We agree with doing everything we can to support our veterans who sacrifice so much – but visit our blog or Facebook page and you will see how much this program means to our Gold Star families or the many families of veterans who have passed and just want to know all those sacrifices and lost holidays were not in vain.

Please help me share this message wherever you think it can do the most good. Our goal is to honor Confederate veterans’ graves with a wreath. But to do that we need to get the word out, get more people involved, and make the gift of remembrance an annual tradition.

Please contact me if I can be of any assistance.

Thank you,

Fred Merridew
