National Wreath Project 2014 - Please help!

8,000 wreaths on graves at Quantico and Gettysburg  National Cemeteries.
This year we have committed to placing 9,000 Wreaths between the two
Cemeteries. We are committed to placing 7,400 Wreaths at Quantico National
Cemetery, where Sergeant Eric McColley is interred.  We have also again
committed to placing   wreaths on every headstone in the  Gettysburg
National Cemetery (also known as Soldiers National Cemetery). This will
enable us to place a wreath on EVERY headstone in the original section of
the Cemetery at Gettysburg. We would  To accomplish this project, we need to
raise just approximately $ 64,000.00.

We would sincerely appreciate any assistance that you could provide in
funding this endeavor. The wreaths and bows cost $ 8.00 each and are
provided at cost by GIANT FOOD of Carlisle, PA. Transportation of the
wreaths from Gettysburg to Quantico, VA is provided generously by ABF
FREIGHT SYSTEMS. Everything else is provided by volunteers. 100% of every
dollar donated will go to the purchase of wreaths.

You are invited to visit the Sgt. Mac Foundation web site at WWW.SGTMAC.ORG
for details and photos of how THE NATIONAL WREATH PROJECT began as well as
photos of last year's program.

Please consider assisting us in this most worthy tribute to our Veterans. We
are looking for contributions and sponsors by individuals, businesses,
Veterans organizations and anyone else interested in helping us to honor our
deceased and fallen Veterans.

You are also invited to join us in person for this program. This year we
will meet at the Giant Food Store on Route 30 in Gettysburg, PA at 0800 on
Friday December 5th  to tie the bows on the Wreaths. We will then take a
break and meet at 1:00 PM at the Gettysburg National Cemetery at the
Taneytown Road entrance. After a short ceremony we will place the Wreaths.
The following day, Saturday December 6th  we will meet at 10:00AM at the
Quantico National Cemetery and place the Wreaths there.
