Freedom Team Member Denise Fassbender is a proud member of the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina, an organization made up of parents that have children serving in the United States Military. Blue Star Mothers host various events such as their annual Wreath Laying Program (Wreaths Across America), letter writing campaigns for soldiers serving overseas, and Welcome Home events for soldiers returning to the United States.
Thanks to her efforts, along with the hundreds of other parents involved, the group was able to secure 960 wreaths for 2012. That was 400 more than 2010, and nearly half of the 2,100 total wreaths for Florence National Cemetery, which now has over 11,000 Veterans’ graves.
