Wreaths Across America
"This year, when you place a Wreath on a Veterans Grave, you will know it is not just a wreath. It's your personal gift to an American hero, and you will swell with pride, and have a tear in your eye knowing you've done something special for our Veterans and their families. God bless out Veterans and God bless America."
Fran Carlsen, Chair Wreaths Across America

On Veterans Day, members of the Brunswick Town Chapter, National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, gave a special Veterans Day Program to residents of Dosher Nursing Home. Chapter Vice Regent Carol Jutte, members Dale Spencer and Kitsy Lackey joined Regent Diane Kuebert in presenting residents with American Flags and pinning red, white and blue ribbons on each Veteran present. Each Vietnam Veteran also was given a special Vietnam War commemorative pin. Patriotic songs were sung and ended with a Veterans Day Prayer. The group then visited a 91-year-old WWII Veteran in his room and gave him a program, flag, commemorative pin, and ribbon.
Brunswick Town Chapter DAR go to different nursing homes in Brunswick County each year to honor and thank our veterans.
