Thanks for last year's support
LETTER TO THE EDITOR November 10, 2018 Dear Community; On behalf of our veterans buried at Maryland Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery (MDCHVC) and the St. Charles High School (SCHS) Marine Corp Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (MCJROTC) we would like to “THANK” our community, family, and friends for your generous contributions in 2017. A “SPECIAL THANKS” to Bel Alton Memorial VFW Post 10081; Century21 New Millennium Real Estate, La Plata; DC Ramblers Motorcycle Club Inc., Hughesville; Disabled American Veterans Maryland Chapter #17, Temple Hills; Disabled American Veterans Maryland Chapter #36, White Plains; The Family & Friends of Daniel McDonald of Accokeek; Harry White Wilmer Post 82 American Legion, La Plata; Home Starts Here, LLC; The Crossroads of the Hughesville Garden Club, Hughesville; La Plata Lions International Club, La Plata; Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 8810, Waldorf; Southern Charles County Memorial Post VFW Post 100; and Southern Maryland Mustang Club for your sponsorship & support of our program. The response to my CALL FOR ACTION published in the October 2017 Maryland Independent newspaper was over whelming! Your support helped me exceed my personal fundraising goal of over $12,000 in sponsored wreaths for Maryland Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery. December 16, 2017 was a record year for Wreaths Across America at Cheltenham, as we received 8,200+ wreaths to be laid in memory of our loved ones. Cheltenham is the final resting place for more than 27,000 US service members and their spouses. With your contribution we covered a third of the cemetery. The SCHS MCJROTC Remembered and Honored the following with a sponsored wreath at Cheltenham: DOUGLAS DUANE ALFORD, ROBERT GEORGE AMOS, MARIE AMOS, WILLIAM EDWIN ANDERSON, GEORGE BANNIGAN, WILLAIM BRENT BARBOUR, NATHANIEL BELLAMY, WILLIAM H BERNINGHAUSEN, LINDA DARLENE BETTS, MARGARET BOWMAN, NATHAN J BOWMAN, KENNETH STEVEN BRADBURN, ROBERT LEWIS BROWN, CLYDE M, JR BURNS, WILLIAM PATRICK BURNS, RICHARD CALDWELL, LOWELL E CAREY, LARRY CARROLL, THOMAS BERRY, SR CARROLL, CLARA ESTELLE CARROLL, DONALD A CHANDLER, WILLIAM A, SR CHANDLER, WILLIAM ROBERT CHESELDINE, ALICE MAE CHRISTIAN, JAMES DOUGLAS CHRISTIAN, FRANK CICALA, SYLVESTER FREDERICK CLAGETT, EDWARD CLARK, WILLIAM JOSEPH CLARK, ELIZABETH ANN CLIFTON, FRANKLIN, SR CLIFTON, JOHN COPSEY, VERA COPSEY, MARION G DAVIS, KENNETH DAVIS, KEN DAVIS, JEAN HOTTLE DAYTON, CHARLES RICHARD DELANEY, RICHARD DELEANEY, JAMES S L DOBSON, ALBERT A DORSEY, CHARLES GORDON, SR DOTSON, JOHN DONOVAN DOVE, ROBERT R DULEY, JOHN M DUNCAN, WILLIAM CLARK, SR DUNTY, JAMES ROLAND DYER, JOHN EBERHARDT, ALVIN ROY EDWARDS, DONALD A EPPERSON, TERRENCE V EYLER, DOUGLAS CLIFFORD FARMER, ROSS LOUIS FIASCO, WAYNE I FOSTER, JAMES HEBER, JR GARNER, JAMES DONALD GARNER, EARL DOWNING, JR GOULD, EMMETT F G GRAY, THOMAS M GRINDER, CARLA RUTH GRITZMACHER, JOHN MICHAEL, JR GYORDA, DONALD F HALL, GEORGE SMITH HAMPTON, JOHN E HANCOCK, JOSEPH ALLEN HENDERSON, ROBERT HENDRICKS, SHARON HENDRICKS, INEZ HERGETT, WILLIAM HERGETT, WILLIAM A HERGETT, WILLIAM WASHINGTON HOCKER, JACKIE F HORRELL, SARAH G HUSTON, SARA HUTCHIISON, WILLIAM F, SR HUTCHISON, CHARLES, JR HYDE, DONALD ALLEN INKS, JAMES E JACOBS, JAMES R JACOBS, WILLIAM KARR, JAMES JOSEPH KENNEDY, JAMES HOWARD KIDWELL, KENNETH W KNOTTS, BONNIE LANE, CLYDE LANE, RICHARD W LAW, MILTON ANDREW LEWIS, OPAL EVELYN LEWIS, CLYDE WESLEY LICK, FRANCIS J LIGHTHEART, DAVID BRUCE LUTZ, LOUIS V LYLES, DONALD ALEXANDER MACDONALD, ROY MAHEW, FRANK LATHAM, SR McALWEE, DANIEL CHARLES McDONALD, DAVID G McVAY, DANIEL ANTHONY MEARS, REBECCA MEARS, MICHAEL MEARS, ROBERT MEEK, VERNON CHESTER, JR MONDAY, EARLE MAREEN MOORE, CHARLES L MOSLEY, JOHN L MULDOON, SAMUEL NEWMAN, EUGENE O’BRIEN, CATHERINE O’BRIEN, JAMES J O'BRIEN, DONALD JOSEPH PARISE, NENA J PERRY, CARNELL POOLE, EVA MARY POSEY, RUDOLPH A, SR POSEY, GIOVANNI PULVIRENTI, MARY PULVIRENTI, ROBERTO RAMIREZ, MARION A RICHARDS, FRANCES ROBERTSON, OPHUS LANDON, JR ROBERTSON, SHIRLEY SANDS, JEFFREY THOMAS SCOTT, CHARLES SHANHOLTZER, RANDALL W SHANHOLTZER, CHRISTOPHER D SHEFFE, KENNETH H SISK, MARJORIE SISK, GEORGE SLAY, JOHN SMITH, MARY E SMITH, BERNARD D, SR SPICER, GEORGE E SPOONER, DAVID OLIVER SPROUSE, DAVID, JR STEGER, ARNOLD JOHN STEMPER, BOBBIE JO STEMPER, GENE AUSTIN STONEMAN, DAN STRATCHER, JOHN STRONG, SARAH ANN SWANN, CHARLES EBEL SWANN, CHARLES ALLEN, SR TABOR, EMERSON FRANCIS TARBURTON, WILLIAM TAYMAN, HENRY H, SR TETRAULT, CARL WILBUR TODD, JUDITH ANN TODD, ALFREDO L, SR VALLARTA, ALFREDO S, JR VALLARTA, FRANK H VEVERS, PAULA J VEVERS, JAMES EUGENE WALKER, CLIFFORD H WALLACE, THOMAS E WATKA, WAYNE EDWARD WAUGH, JAMES EDWARD WEDDING, MATTHEW D WEHAUSEN, BENJAMIN R WIBLE, GARY LEE, SR WINEMILLER, LARRY AARON WOODLAND, DORIS JEAN YOUNG, and JAMES STEVEN YOUNG I would like to encourage and invite each of our sponsors and the public to join us on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Maryland Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery, 11301 Crain Highway, Cheltenham, Maryland 20623 for the Wreaths Across America event.
