Saturday December 13, 2014
at 12 noon EST, 11am for Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.
Please join us at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery (11AM) on that day.
I will not be taking names for volunteers this year ahead of time
But will be asking volunteers to sign up at the VOLUNTEER TENT
If you want to help place a wreath, they will be placed right after
the 11 am ceremony. Everyone is welcome to come out and help.
Please understand that we are all volunteer for this event.
If you want to request a grave specific you MUST send the:
name, section & site number of Veteran, a contact phone
to the address above ONLY. WAA does not have any way of doing grave specific.
*** PLEASE NOTE ON GRAVE SPECIFIC***
We are all volunteer on rely on 1000 volunteers that they will place each wreath where they are told
However, that being said, the only 100% guarantee to have the wreath placed on your grave specific,
is to come place it yourself. Untill we have a wreath for every grave it is a very difficult task to make it all happen
But we do try our best!
