January 2018

We will be taking a break from the weekly newsletters in February, in order to take stock and build a new newsletter platform.
This week we recap the past weekend's events, with volunteers 'retiring the wreaths' at Arlington National Cemetery and hundreds of other locations nationwide.
This past weekend and over the next several, our 1422 locations nationwide will be organizing volunteers for what we call 'The Retiring of the Wreaths' - cleanup effort that is every bit as patriotic as the day the wreaths are placed in December.

Now that we are into 2018 and past the holiday week, we are back on our regular publishing schedule (Tuesdays), with more great stories for and about out veterans.
While the eastern part of the country is hunkered down for today's winter storm, and others are just coming out of the deep freeze, we want to wish you a warm and Happy New Year!
