FireWatch Magazine focuses on the everyday veteran, their stories, challenges, and success stories. Through in-depth interviews, storytelling, and discovery, veterans can find camaraderie and connection within the pages of FireWatch Magazine. The name 'FireWatch' denotes the magazine's focus on 'keeping watch' by focusing on topics and issues that matter to its readers. The FireWatch platform allows veterans to speak out about their experiences, challenges, and continued efforts to serve the American people.

The #TeamFireWatch can be found in the community, supporting and reporting on veteran-focused events, missions, and opportunities. FireWatch health and wellness contributors commit to discovering new and innovative wellness programs to elevate the veteran experience by providing honest commentary through real-life trial and error in various programs. For FireWatch, collaboration is vital in service to veterans. We always try to find and report on our community's many veteran betterment programs, organizations, and missions.

FireWatch Magazine serves the most critical audience: American Veterans, Active-Duty and Retired Service Members, and their families. We serve without political influence and with extreme sincerity.

$5 from every Wreaths Sponsored through this page goes to the The Lone Magnolia Foundation a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to supporting organizations focusing on the health and welfare of our nation's veterans.

Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the staff and signs to the area you signed up to volunteer.  We do however ask that you enter from the north using exit 314, then West on Hwy 48, turn left onto Co Rd 625, turn right onto Co Rd 476W for 1.6m then left onto Co Rd 476B South.  The cemetery entrance will be on your right.  Entering from this direction helps to alleviate traffic from I-75.   Follow our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WreathsAcrossAmericaBushnell for updates and announcements.   

Parking Instructions

All traffic will be ONE WAY when you enter the cemetery.  We ask that you PARK ON THE LEFT, DRIVE ON THE RIGHT. This will help us to continue the movement of traffic.  You can reference a map, under the PHOTOS tab here on our website.  We will have two areas open for lot parking, one in the 600 block and one in the 400 block (adjacent to the ceremony section) Staff will direct you into these lots to help with overflow.  Once you have received your wreaths you are able to go to any section in the cemetery to place your wreaths, just remember traffic will continue to be one way, so it might mean circling back.  After you have placed your wreaths we ask that you leave the cemetery to allow others to Remember our fallen veterans.  This will help us to continue to move traffic.  Two exits, Maintenance or the Main Exit.  We ask that you honor our volunteers and FNC staff with parking/traffic control.  Thank you for your help in our mission to Remember~Honor~Teach.
