The Thomas Hadley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution thanks you for your support in purchasing wreaths for Wreaths Across America.
Ninety wreaths were placed on graves of Vietnam veterans buried in Rest Haven Cemetery. The Hunt High School Honor Society placed the wreaths for us. These young adults were amazing. They were told to look for veterans born between 1945 and 1955 and also to look at the death date, as many were only 18 or 19 when they were killed in Vietnam. A very sobering experience for these young people.
We will be placing wreaths at Rest Haven in 2020. Please consider helping us honor more Vietnam veterans next year. We could not do Wreaths Across America without your help.
