REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

This quote from Wreaths Across America encompasses my feelings of patriotism. Wreaths Across America is an organization that lays wreaths on Veterans’ graves at Arlington National Cemetery and various locations throughout the United States and abroad. For my service project, I have decided to work with Wreaths Across America to fulfill the mission of the Zilinski Foundation. Lt. Dennis Zilinski was killed in action in Bayji, Iraq on November 19, 2005. He believed that ultimately the fighting in Iraq was protecting his fellow citizens in this great nation of ours. The Zilinski Foundation’s mission is to aid and assist wounded warriors and also sponsor service dogs for Veterans suffering PTSD. 

I am encouraging the community to participate in sponsoring wreaths. Wreaths Across America will match 2 wreaths for every 3 wreath donations. Dennis is buried at United States Military Academy West Point Cemetery, which is where I have chosen our wreaths to be laid. This project will honor Dennis and all others who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. 

My goal for 2020 is for no grave to go uncovered at West Point this holiday season. 7,000 wreaths.

Please share this link www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/nj0137 with friends and family help to Remember and Honor as many fallen heroes as possible.

Thank you so much for supporting the Wreaths for the Dennis Zilinski Foundation (NJ0137) and Wreaths Across America!

God Bless You and God Bless America,

Nicholas Codispoti
