Please join us on Saturday, October 20th, at Zion Harley Davidson for our 3rd annual BBQ fundraiser to benefit Wreaths Across America (WAA).  Our goal this year is to REMEMBER and HONOR approximately 1800 veterans buried at three participating locations:  Tonaquint Cemetery, Shivwits Cemetery and, for the very first time, historic St George Cemetery.  The GOOD NEWS is that we already have sponsors for 1300 wreaths as of this date.  We are very confident that this event annually hosted by Zion Harley Davidson can and will get us much, much closer to the finish line.  

Please help us SPREAD THE WORD about this BBQ fundraiser by circulating the attached flyer and encouraging all you know to come out and support this wonderful cause.  I have attached a link to a mission briefing video that really paints the picture of what Wreaths Across America is all about and why so many people across the nation passionately support it.  I have also attached a news link of our 2017 WAA ceremony so you can also share the impact Wreaths Across America has on our community.   

Please feel free to contact me at any time about this specific event or Wreaths Across America in general.  This year's national WAA ceremony day is scheduled for Saturday, December 15th.  Please SAVE THE DATE as we will need plenty of helpings hands to lay over 1800 wreaths.

Poet Justice Johnston

Marines:  Billion and I thought you might get a kick out of a poem that Justice sent home from Devil Pup summer camp this year.  As you know, Justice is Billion's daughter and has been training with him for two years because she wanted to go to Devil Pup camp so badly.  She not only qualified at age 14, but came pretty close to a perfect PFT score at camp.

The pups all have to write a letter home to their parents.  They are only to write a letter and nothing else, but our little poet decided to add a poem on the back of her letter home.  The instructors caught it - but thought it was so funny they didn't yell at her!  Here's the poem (translation below):


Poem from Devil Pup Camp
By Justice Johnston

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Why did I come here?
I think I’m screwed.
My hair is messed up
and my whole body’s sore,
I’m so flippin’ tired
I’d nap on the floor (I got MRE cheese spread on my paper)
The instructors are scary,
They’re all women here.
If I mess up,
They’ll all scream in my ear!
We get MRE’s
And they taste like trash,
They won’t let us shower –
I smell like A**.

Love you all,
I’ll be home soon,
Justice Johnston
