The ceremony was heartfelt by all who spoke and all who were there to honor loved ones. The cemetery out shined last year with 8,000 plus wreaths donated. So beautiful to see all the headstones had wreaths and I was so speechless to see how so many of our veterans and loved ones were honored. There is new saying out there expressed at the memorial this year, “Yes, I Am an American.”

Speak their name.
Each year, we are encouraged to "speak their name", lest we forget them.  It was my honor to place a wreath and speak Cpl. Phillip E. Campbell's name.  Thank you for your service during the Korean war. 

We will never forget.

Honoring those who’ve served in the past.
I wanted to personally thank You for all your hard work with the WAA Event.

I did not know what to expect on Saturday, thinking it would be a simple set up, with volunteers placing wreaths. The Ceremony was Wonderful. My sisters and I were so moved by the Day, we have decided to make it a full Family event next year in lieu of our regular Family Christmas get together. We have been doing a white elephant gift exchange for the past few years, and think donating the money for wreaths, then all of our families participating in laying wreaths would be a much more rewarding experience.

Looking forward to helping out next year.

Thank you so much for having us and organizing such a rewarding event. I rode with the PGR (Patriot Guard Riders) and my mom brought my son with the Cub Scout Pack. I look forward to participating next year and hope to have at least 75 boys from our pack. God Bless you and thanks again!

Remembering to come again.
It was a very profound experience for us, my son and his friend especially. My husband has already said that he wants to do it again next year, so thank you for being so conscientious about performing your duties to WAA. I am attaching a few pictures that I took from the event. Thank you again for your time and hard work. Have a wonderful New Year.

Warmest regards,

Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work. Yesterday was an amazing and beautiful day of Remembrance (2012).

We had 12 family members participate, representing 3 generations of descendents. Two of their great granddaughters were given the privilege of laying the wreath at their grave site. Neither of which ever got to meet my dad, but have heard the stories we all tell and definitely understand the sacrifice he and all service members make.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
