Memorial Mission

Flags & Flowers by Preston Sharp

Brooklyn, New York - 09-29-18

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Preston Sharp, 13 years old this Friday, is visiting National Cemeteries in all 50 states, and will be placing flags and flowers to honor our fallen, in fashion similar to Wreaths Across America.  New York will be his 22nd state. PGR has supported his project in many of his previous stops; let's have a great turnout and show him what New Yorkers are all about! Cypress Hills National will be his only New York stop - he's looking for volunteers to help decorate 4000 graves at CHNC. The Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, and the Civil Air Patrol Cadets have all been asked to come and help.

We will stand a Flag Line for the beginning of the ceremony, then those who wish to can join Preston in placing flags and flowers which will be provided.
