Hello and welcome to my donation page! I am teaming up with The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) again to promote the foundation and the Wreaths Across America framework to: Remember, Honor, and Teach.
Wreath placement will occur on %December 18, 2019% at veteran cemeteries nationwide. We have a special focus on the Texas State Cemetery, Chris Kyle's final resting place, but our team members will be participating in various cemeteries across the nation.
You can help by sponsoring a wreath, volunteering, or inviting friends to help! My donation page is an extension of the CKFF and one wreath donation/sponsorship is $15 and $5 goes to the CKFF, an organization very close to my heart. To understand why, please read the information below. If you would like to donate/sponsor, click on the red "SPONSOR WREATHS" box.
CKFF was founded by Taya Kyle to honor the life and legacy of her husband, “American Sniper” Chris Kyle. Chris and Taya knew first-hand the challenges military and first responder families encounter from their lives of service. Prior to Chris’ untimely passing in February 2013, he was developing his vision for CKFF programs to support active duty military, veterans and first responder marriages and families. Today, Taya and the CKFF team are fulfilling Chris’ vision through the development and delivery of life-changing, impactful programs and services to service couples across the U.S.
All too often the family support network for those serving our country – either as a member of our armed services or as a first responder – can be overlooked or forgotten. As a nation, we are beginning to discuss and understand how a life of service and sacrifice can negatively contribute to frayed marriages and fractured families. Together our work is creating a positive effect for those families by providing much needed support. At CKFF, we do not believe serving your country or your community should mean sacrificing your family.
The mission of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) is to Honor GOD, Country and Families who serve.
It is focused on changing the world for this generation and the next by recognizing and strengthening military and first responder marriages through unique programs and powerful partnerships
The team at the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation develops and delivers programs that support having a country with thriving and connected military and first responder marriages.
The CKFF team are professionals who understand what it means to live a service-oriented life, who believe in the power that God, Country and Family can provide to an individual and a marriage, and create programs and experiences which will strengthen and support service marriages and families.
The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation has been built on four solid pillars:
Loyalty: Committed to God, Country, and Family
Empowerment: Empowering Families to Thrive
Integrity: Honesty and Transparency in our Programs, Funding and Communications
Excellence: Reflecting the service excellence that our constituents provide in service to their communities and country

Directions to Cemetery
Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself.
Use Metro to Access the Cemetery
Due to anticipated congestion at the Arlington National Cemetery Metro stop, recommend exiting via the Rosslyn and Pentagon Metro stops and walking to the cemetery. From these locations it is a short 15-minute walk to one of the cemetery entrances. If taking the Rosslyn exit, recommend using the cemetery’s Ord & Weitzel gate by walking along the North Meade Street sidewalks. If taking the Pentagon exit, recommend using the cemetery’s South Gate entrance.
General public parking will be available at the Pentagon North Parking Lot (Lanes 50-60), South Parking Lot (Lanes 1-18) and the Pentagon City Mall parking garage (small fee associated). There will be volunteers and signage positioned in the parking lots guiding visitors to walk to the nearest cemetery entrances. For those parking in Pentagon South Parking and Pentagon City Mall Parking garage, recommend walking to the cemetery’s South Gate entrance for screening and entry to the grounds. For those parking in Pentagon North Parking, recommend walking to the cemetery’s main entrance on Memorial Ave. by using the Route 27 pedestrian walkway.
Family Pass Holders
The Arlington National Cemetery Welcome Center parking garage will ONLY be available to ANC Family Pass holders who pre-register on a first-come, first-served basis. ANC will publish a registration system on Dec. 1. Those who pre-register will need to provide their family pass and confirmation email and will need to go to Pentagon North parking lanes 61-63 beginning at 7 a.m. They will then be escorted by law enforcement into the cemetery's Welcome Center parking garage. Once all spaces are filled (600 available), all family pass holders will need to park at the Pentagon's North or South Parking Lot and walk to the cemetery. There is no vehicle access on Memorial Ave. and significant road closures in and around the main entrance. Visitors attempting to gain access to Memorial Ave. and park in the parking garage without pre-registration will be directed by law enforcement to park at the Pentagon.
