Song Composed To Help Boost Effort To Place Wreaths On Every Grave
A song has been written to help with the effort to help place a wreath on every grave at Chattanooga National Cemetery. Capt. Mickey McCamish, a leader in the effort, said, "When LST 325 was here, I spoke with Steve Dean and Don Goodman about composing a “Wreaths across Chattanooga” song to help increase the awareness of our efforts. Steve and Don have now composed the song. The vocalist is Claudia “Bo” Cox, a Chattanooga Vet Center employee. Eventually, we will cover all graves at Chattanooga National Cemetery."
We have received support for more than 12,500 wreaths. Click here to listen to the song.
