Wreaths Across America Support and Sponsorship

We are asking for individuals and businesses to become a partner for Ft Benning  Cemetery  Wreaths Across America is a 501.c.3 program.  Any amount helps us toward our goal.   The majority of these veterans served in WW II, Korea, and Vietnam, and many served in all three conflicts.

We are trying to HONOR as many of the 9,000 graves in the Fort Benning Cemetery, as possible.  For individual sponsors of over $100, or business who sponsor $1,000 or more they will be listed on the event program.  Please share with other individuals or businesses you know.

For questions they can ask

Thank you for your support.

Columbus, an extraordinary city, with a vibrant, artsy energy, phenomenal food and ample outdoor recreation. Even our past comes alive with living history events and lifelike museum exhibits. Columbus blends old and new, wild and mild, entertainment and experiences make it both under the radar and over the top. Stroll along Columbus’ iconic Chattahoochee RiverWalk. Watch people in rafts plunge through the spray of the water in the longest urban whitewater course in the world while others enjoy a leisurely paddle in the river’s flat-water areas. A few streets over along the RiverWalk, locally owned stores and boutiques welcome shoppers who enjoy the easily walkable shopping districts. Fashionistas and antique pickers alike can go from shop to shop before sitting under a table umbrella, and dine al fresco.

Columbus is home to many renowned attractions, here are a few:

The Springer Opera House, named the State Theatre of Georgia

The Ma Raney Home, a historical landmark honoring the legendary “Mother of Blues”

The Columbus Museum American art & regional history, second largest art museum in Georgia,

The National Infantry Museum & Soldier Center, named the Best Free Museum in America by USA Today for a second time, locally called “NIM”, this world-class museum chronicles history of the US Infantry from its formation to the present with eight galleries, authentic WWll Company Street, outdoor monuments and memorials, combat simulators, restaurant and theater.

The Naval Civil War Museum overlooks the Chattahoochee River, and houses artifacts of wreckage of CSS Chattahoochee, full scale replica of USS Monitor’s famous turret, and offer living history events, cannon firings, weapon demonstrations and more.

No wonder President Franklin Roosevelt and President Jimmy Carter traveled to Ga, to enjoy nature, serene peace, and relax from the stress of that office. This city is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors, listen to music or taste fine brewed beer. In short, we’ve got world- class experience, no matter what you’re into; you can go all out in Columbus!
