Only two days remain in the national Wreaths Across America matching program. Wreaths Across America national headquarters will match any wreaths sponsored from now through through Friday, Jan. 14, 2022, for placement during WAA Day on Dec. 17, 2022.
In order for a wreath to be “matched” the wreath has to be purchased through a a registered WAA Sponsorship Group – like the CGSC Foundation.
The CGSC Foundation’s WAA site is –– https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/KS0101P
The Foundation’s goal in 2021 was to honor all 900 veterans buried in Section N of the cemetery. – The Foundation achieved that goal with 921 wreaths sponsored. Combined with efforts of other participating organizations and individuals, Sections N and M of the cemetery were completely covered with wreaths this year. Efforts to honor veterans in 2022 have already begun with this matching program.
The CGSC Foundation wishes to thank you in advance for your support of this very meaningful program.
According to WAA’s director of communications, the 2021 Wreaths Across America effort was able to honor 2.4 million veterans at 3,136 participating cemeteries and other locations across the country, including the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery.
