Veterans to Washington Project

$705 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 10 months
We are losing WWII, Korean and Vietnam Vets at an alarming number each day. Many of those who fought so valiantly for our freedoms have never had the opportunity to go to Washington, D. C. to see the monuments that were built in their honor.

These funds will be used to offset the cost for them to make the journey, with other vets. We are planning a bus ride from Leland, N.C. for three days in early October 018. We can take as many as 50 per bus. Our schedule will include a visit to the White House, Capitol Hill,  Arlington Cemetery and the changing of the guard and each of the monuments.

We hope to raise enough money to offset all the cost involved. If you have ever wanted repay a vet and couldn't think of how, then this is a perfect opportunity to say thanks to these vets.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Our bus is filling up and it's only two months away. Oh behalf of the veterans making this trip, we thank you for your support from the bottom of our hearts. This money will be used to pay for the 3 WWII vets and 2 Korean Vets who have signed up to go. We are still accepting contributions, so keep it coming.

We are gaining momentum everyday. But we still need help to offset the costs for others. Each dollar helps us offset the cost for another veteran to join us. It's time to call the rich aunt and uncle. And don't forget that your contribution is tax deductible as a contribution for the American Legion Post 68, Leland, NC project, "Vets to Washington." Ruth is a wonderful retired lady. You gonna let her be the top donor? Really. LOL
