Wreaths Across America at USNA

Dear Alumni, parents, and friends,

As fall settles in here in Annapolis it is once again time to request your help in getting the word out to classmates, parents, and friends about the Wreaths Across America (WAA) event that will take place on Friday December 13, 2019 at 09:30 at the cemetery at USNA. I am requesting that Class and Chapter officers spread the word to their classmates and chapter members.

This will be our 8th year to place remembrance wreaths at the USNA cemetery to honor those that have gone before and to remember their love for this country. Please help us cover each grave and the columbarium at the USNA cemetery with a wreath. Your donation to this program is ever so helpful to accomplish this. Below are the ways to purchase the wreaths. The wreaths are $15.00 per wreath, or by using the site shown below, for every two purchased a third will be given for free. (You will not see that happen as it is automatic).

Directions for online donations:

www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/md0011

Just follow the red “donate” buttons to purchase your wreaths and to pay.

Donations by mail:
Wreaths Across America
PO Box 249
Columbia Falls, ME 04623

Please write: “MD0011/MDUSNA” in your memo section of your check and make payable to: Wreaths Across America.

The class of '81 will once again sponsor this event, if you wish to verify you may contact the class president, Otto Stutz at otto@1981.usna.com

If you are in the Annapolis area Friday, December 13, 2019 at 09:30 please join us in this moving event, a great way to start off the Army vs Navy weekend honoring many, remembering all. Please help us, and take a moment to remember those classmates and loved ones that lay there in final rest by saying their names and honoring their lives.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Once again, I am asking that the class officers distribute this information to their classmates so others can see that this is an option to remember those buried at USNA. I will be glad to do any grave specific requests. Thank you for your time and effort for this event.

Respectfully,
Carol Turman
