The Calhoun Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol will not be participating in Wreaths Across America this year. Due to Covid, we have not been able to fund raise to purchase the wreaths, as usual starting fund raising in March and continuing until November. This year we have chosen not to risk our cadets and senior members becoming ill.

Even though we will not be able to honor our veterans as we have for the last five years, we would ask that you stop what you are doing at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 19th, and observe a moment of silence to honor all veterans.

God bless our veterans both near and far.
