"REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom."
These are the words from Wreaths Across America urging us to remember, honor and teach the next generation about our veterans by laying wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes, saying each name aloud.
Through the pouring rain and blustery cold, members of the Bishop McNamara Baseball Team along coaches, parents and families, joined together early December 15th to "...honor those who serve..." laying wreaths and taking a moment to say the name of each veteran aloud.
"Wreaths Across America brings together people from all walks of life, uniting them in the common mission to remember the fallen, honor those that serve, and teach the next generation about the true cost of freedom," said Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America. "We are not here to 'Decorate Graves'. We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives."
As Wreaths across America reminds us, "In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season...We will never forget."
Those who took time to honor were our BMHS Baseball team members Nick Miller '19, Ian Cawthorne '19, Nick Mebane '19, Michael Scott '19, Jalen Watson '19, Joe Quelch '19, Jared Mammano '20, Noah Wiggins '20, Jon Rodenhaver '20, Donavan Frayer '20, Brandon Baker '20, Brennen Wicks '20, Ryan Shieh '21, Miles Peterson '21, Josh Wilson '21, Khalil Greene '21, Andrew Garner '21, Justin Bechet '21, Ryan Davis '21, Robert Johnson '22, Jaden Ritzes '21, Jon Hinton '21, Steven Matthews '21, Ben Holt '21, Trevor Paige '21, and Bryce Thompson '22, along with team coaches Anthony Sosnoskie (Head Coach), Kevin Clark, Jordan Martinez, Jordan McNair, and Colton Watson.
Our thanks to those who are serving or who have served, and for those who took the time to honor these heroes, just as our Baseball Team has done for the last several years.
