American Legion Post 9 working to fill Beaufort National Cemetery
Beaufort’s American Legion Post 9 is a sponsoring group for “Wreaths Across America.”
The goal is to get as many wreaths as possible to the graves of our veterans buried at the Beaufort National Cemetery.
Post 9 will not receive any funds for this effort but will receive one extra wreath for every two donated. Currently there are only 6,000 wreaths donated for 26,000 graves in Beaufort National Cemetery.
Each wreath donation is $15. Single wreath donations will be combined to generate extra wreaths. Of course, donating two wreaths ($30) will provide for one additional one.
Donations can be made directly on our group’s web site at https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/SC0174 or by check (written to Beaufort Post 9 or Wreaths Across America and mailed to Post 9, PO Box 2540, Beaufort S.C. 29901)
The cutoff date for this year’s donations is Dec. 2 and the wreath distribution day is Dec. 14 at noon at the Beaufort National Cemetery. Please consider donating and coming out to help distribute the wreaths.
