On Dec. 19, 2020, National Wreaths Across America Day, dedicated Americans in every state honored our nation’s heroes by safely placing a total of 1.7 million veterans’ wreaths on their headstones and remembering them, by saying each name out loud. Wreaths Across America occurred at 2,557 participating locations, with the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery being one. The CGSC Foundation was a proud supporter of this effort.
Building on the 2020 effort, Wreaths Across America (WAA) has announced a wreath matching campaign for its registered Sponsorship Groups such as the CGSC Foundation, that is open now, and will run through Friday, Jan. 15, 2021. This campaign is only for veterans’ wreaths sponsored through a local WAA Sponsorship Group like the Foundation in your area.
If you choose to sponsor a wreath now, WAA will match that wreath in December 2021. For every $15 wreath, $5 goes to the CGSC Foundation to continue its mission in support of the Soldiers, families, staff and faculty of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
