Dear Alumni and Friends,
     First of all a belated happy Veterans Day, and thank you to all who have served.  Secondly, I hope you received the email sent last month concerning Wreaths Across America (WAA) at the USNA cemetery.  For those that have donated, Thank You so much.  We are halfway there to reaching our goal and there is about one week left.  The deadline for donating wreaths is 27 November.

     I am the coordinator of Wreaths Across America at USNA. You are probably most familiar with the wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery done every December. Myself and my husband's Class of
'81 have taken on this event every year for the last 6 years, to honor and remember those shipmates and loved ones at the USNA cemetery and columbarium.  Many may not have family members living
close enough to lay a wreath on a loved ones' grave so we have made it our desire to do so for them.  Prices are $15/wreath or with the code of MD0011 you may purchase two wreaths and get a third one for free.  This is done automatically by the WAA people and you will not see the third wreath mentioned when you purchase two wreaths at the WAA website. WAA knows that with code MD0011 they are to issue a third wreath for every two donated.

     All you need to do is copy and paste the following WAA address to get to the USNA MD0011 location.  Once the site pops up follow the instructions to sponsor the desired number of wreaths to the USNA Cemetery.

     If you are in the area on Friday, December 8th at 09:30 please stop by the cemetery and help us remember many and honor all.

Thank You,
Carol Turman
