“REMEMBER the Fallen.. . HONOR those who Serve… TEACH our children the value of Freedom.”
This quote from Wreaths Across America encompasses 1, feelings of patriotism. Wreaths Across America is an organization that lays wreaths on Veterans’ graves at Arlington National Cemetery and various locations throughout the United States and abroad. For my service project, I have decided to work with Wreaths Across America to fulfill the mission of the Zilinski Foundation. Lt. Dennis Zilinski was killed in action in Bayji, Iraq on November zoo, He believed that ultimately the fighting in Iraq was protecting his fellow citizens in this great nation of ours.
The Zilinski Foundation’s mission is to aid and assist wounded warriors and also sponsor service clog for Veterans suffering PTSD.
I am encouraging the student body and community to participate in sponsoring wreaths.
Wreaths Across America will return $5.00 of every $15.00 wreath donation to support the Zilinski Foundation. Dennis is buried at United States Military Academy West Point Cemetery, which is where I have chosen our wreaths to be laid. This project will honor Dennis and all others who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
