​American Legion Post 205 Honors Wreaths Across America At Veterans Memorial

Wreaths Across America 2022


Dennis J.  Becker American Legion Post 205, Bluffton, SC is again participating in the Wreaths Across America program this year.  You may or not know that Wreaths Across America started as a simple gesture of thanks that has grown into a national movement of dedicated volunteers and communities coming together to not only remember the Nation’s fallen and honor their service, but to teach the next generation about the sacrifices made for us to live freely.  This year there will be more that 2,500 participating locations placing wreaths on National Wreaths Across America Day on Saturday, December 17, 2022, with more than 2 million volunteers coming together. 

We would like to raise funds to place wreaths on the headstones of veterans laid to rest at Beaufort National Cemetery, Beaufort, SC, (as well as local Bluffton cemeteries) to ensure those individuals who served to protect the freedoms of our country will never be forgotten and to bring the community together in a patriotic commemoration.

Together we can make a difference by purchasing wreaths at $15 each.  A portion of this money will be returned to the Post for our projects.  You may log onto the Post website www.alpost205.org for the connection to Wreaths Across America for online orders or print the attached form and mail it with a check to Post 205.  Online registration ends November 30, 2022 and the mail-in form must get to Post 205 by November 11, 2022.
