Each year in Dec the Veterans Council sponsors the annual Wreaths Across America program at our St. Augustine National Cemetery. This is a public event with our local citizens purchasing wreaths and placing them on a headstone of their choice. This year, due to the Covid-19 virus, the National Cemetery Administration has restricted the number of people we can have in the cemetery. In keeping with their current policy, we will have 50 volunteers on Friday, 18 Dec. 2020 to unload the truck and place the wreaths directly onto each gravesite. Then on Sat. 19 Dec, we will have a small ceremony of 10 people to conduct a small ceremony and place the ceremonial wreath representing each branch of service followed by a playing of Taps. Please send out the attached press release and sponsorship form to our distribution list as well as our FB and Web Site. Thanks, William Dudley Chairman, Veterans Council of St. Johns County
St. Johns Veterans Council receives County Commissioners Proclamation
On Nov. 3, the Veterans Council of St. Johns County met with the Board of County Commissioners to receive a proclamation from the Commissioners honoring our Veterans. As we have done every year in the past, we presented the BCC with gifts. This year, we presented each of the Commissioners and Administration with a copy of LTC Greg Moore's book, “Sacred Ground: The Military Cemetery at St. Augustine,” that he wrote before his passing.  Alison Simpson, Command Historian, Florida National Guard, wrote an inscription in the front cover “In remembrance of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and in honor of our nation's veterans, please accept this book on behalf of LTC (Retired) Gregory A. Moore, deceased, as a token of appreciation for your service to this community and as a source for inspiration to learn more about our great country and the men and women who made it so.” LTC Greg Moore’s widow Nancy Moore was in attendance for the presentation.

Ladies and Gentlemen: This email provides notice of First Coast Honor Flight, Inc.'s inaugural Honor Flight later this year. The sole mission of First Coast Honor Flight (FCHF) is to provide Northeast Florida Veterans with "the trip of a lifetime" to Washington, D.C. at no expense to them, to visit the monuments and memorials honoring their service and sacrifice. For the past 18 months, serious public health concerns and the closure of most Washington-area memorial sites have prevented the nationwide network of Honor Flight Hubs from flying. The national Honor Flight Network Board of Directors has authorized Honor Flights to resume effective August 15th, 2021.  FCHF has set an inaugural flight date of Saturday, October 2, 2021 for a group of 25 Veterans and 25 Guardians to travel from Jacksonville International Airport to Washington, D.C. and return the same day. Six FCHF Staff members, including a medical doctor, will escort this group. We are in the process of selecting the group of Veterans and Guardians who will travel on this flight. ALL SELECTEES WILL BE INDIVIDUALLY CONTACTED TO CONFIRM CONTINUED INTEREST AND AVAILABILITY. We will complete the selection and notification processes by August 31, 2021  For the safety and wellbeing of Veterans, Guardians, Staff Members, and Volunteers, COVID-19 protocols and precautions will be in effect for all Honor Flights nationwide through the end of 2021. Additional information will be provided to Veterans and Guardians selected for FCHF’s October flight and to Volunteers wishing to assist with Flight-related events. With respect, Selena Hernandez-Haines President, First Coast Honor Flight, Inc. 888.400.1185 info@firstcoasthonorflight.org  www.firstcoasthonorflight.org
