We are now ready for the next phase of our year-long Wreaths Across America activities, which is one of the most important parts of the program, the selling and placing of wreaths in our nation's cemeteries. It is your opportunity to again honor veterans in your community and, in the process, help raise funds for your squadron. Whether you are an experienced Wreaths Across America participant or a squadron new to this project, you will welcome the Quick Start Pamphlet designed to make this project extremely easy to implement. Included are an overview of the program, answers to frequently asked questions, a sample location ceremony, and some tips on ceremony etiquette.
Our goal this year is 100 percent participation in Wreaths Across America, and thanks to this Quick Start Pamphlet, that goal should be easily attainable for everyone. I appreciate your support of this important program, and I wish each of you the best as together we promote Civil Air Patrol and teach the next generation the importance of honoring our country's veterans.
