Mare Island Naval Cemetery is in need of serious love and attention! Our plan is to clear some downed trees, debris and remove smaller trees. Clean up the grounds form storm debris and general grounds maintenance. Fence fixing and a little painting. Replacing the information sign and mailbox at the entrance. The largest project is the cataloguing of the grave stones, we will be using digital photos, written record and add to a map that can be handed over to the VA once they take control of the property. We can expect some warm weather but the cemetery is very shaded with a nice breeze from the bay. TMC will provide snacks, water and any tools needed to complete the work.
What To Wear :
Will update closer to event, but the usual attire that is sturdy and can get dirty.
Wil provide a map and directions to registered participants.
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
