REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the First Colonial Crew Club VA0532P's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday, December 19, 2020, First Colonial Crew Club will be helping Hampton National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
