This is a very important and worthwhile project that the entire Legion family should be involved with. Through this program we honor our fallen heroes, veterans that have passed on to Post Everlasting, and we also support our Georgia Veterans at VA hospitals and clinics in the State through a donation to the Department Commanders Joint Special Project. This fund supplies much needed non-appropriated items that our Georgia veterans need and want.
- If every Legion Post, SAL Squadron, Auxiliary Unit, ALR Chapter and District organization sponsors 10 wreaths, we would place appromimately 5,120 wreaths.
- The rebate for the Department Special Project would be $25,600!
This would go a long way to reaching our annual goal of $100,000! This year we are supporting wreaths being placed at the cemeteries below. If you have another cemetery that you would like to donate a wreath/s to, please contact Larry Hammond and he will help you get that accomplished.
- Andersonville National Cemetery
- Chattanooga National Cemetery
- Ft Mitchell National Cemetery
- Georgia National Cemetery
- Glennville State Cemeter
- Marietta National Cemetery
- Milledgeville State Cemetery
