“My father is buried at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery,” Rhonda disclosed. “I participated in the wreath ceremony there two years ago, and we were able to place one on his grave. I looked into it and found out more about the organization and the fundraising opportunities. I thought it would be a great community service project for our students.”...
