The Mission Continues and The Wounded Warrior Project will join forces with the American Battlefield Trust to take part in Park Day at the Monocacy National Battlefield in Frederick, Maryland. Park Day is an annual event that brings history enthusiasts and volunteers together in an effort to help keep our nation’s heritage not only preserved, but pristine. Since 1996, the American Battlefield Trust has sponsored Park Day, an annual hands-on preservation event to help Civil War and now Revolutionary War & War of 1812 battlefields and historic sites take on maintenance projects large and small. After taking part in service projects across the battlefield in the morning, TMC and WWP volunteers will come together to enjoy each other’s fellowship over a catered lunch and to learn more about each other’s programs and services, as well as more about the battlefield itself. Participants will rally at the Visitor’s Center at 8:30 AM on Park Day and then turn to on projects throughout the morning prior to concluding with a fine lunch.
What To Wear :
TMC shirts, clothing for out door work and a smile.

Parking free on site
Inclement Weather Plan :
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.
