The Brooklyn Platoon will be supporting Wreaths Across America at Cypress Hills National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
If you would like to join us, please sign up both on Wreaths Across America (https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/16641/Overview/?relatedId=0) and through our own page.
Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome. Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so please be on time. Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath. Follow the location coordinator instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
Thank you so much for supporting Cypress Hills National Cemetery and Wreaths Across America and The Mission Continues!
What To Wear :
Your "Mission Continues" camaraderie spirts
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.
