As you know, our sponsors and volunteers play a fundamental role in the success of our mission to honor those who served. This newsletter hopes to show a bit more of the tremendous activity behind the scenes for the setup and placement of flowers at both Alexandria and Arlington National Cemeteries.
Videographer Lani Conklin captured the events over a three-day period and compressed it all into a mere 7 minutes. Videos we send are rarely this long, but we ask you to make some popcorn and grab a few scoops of your favorite ice cream as you get an idea of what you and our Core Volunteers did over the Memorial Day Weekend 2021.
We remain incredibly grateful to be able to play our part in paying tribute to those who served this country. The heroes we honor and remember were willing to put themselves in harm’s way for our freedom. Their families shared that risk, and we are honored to be able to give them flowers for Memorial Day.
