Dear Legionnaire’s and Friends,

Thank you for supporting me as your Burlington County Commander for the year 2017-2018.

Again this year I have chosen the MOH (Mission of Honor) for my Commanders project. I hope you will all agree, this is a worthy project. New Jersey’s Mission of Honor is comprised of volunteers from various veterans organizations and non- profit groups.

MOH Mission statement:

The purpose of the New Jersey’s MOH for Cremains of American Veterans is to locate, identify and inter the orphaned and abandoned cremains of American veteran’s through the joint efforts of Veteran Organizations throughout New Jersey. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country in time of peace and conflict.

The MOH is a registered 501c19 Non Profit Corp.

Each Urn has the veteran’s branch of service on it.

Some of these veterans have been in the basement on a shelf at a funeral home for years. One Vet was on a shelf for 66 years. No veteran deserves this kind of treatment.

It costs $250.00 for this urn. They are buried at General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery, with the honors they deserve. They are finally laid to rest where they belong. Many man hours are spent, locating these veteran’s cremains and trying to locate their family members. If no family members can be found, the MOH makes sure they are taken care of with the Honors every veteran deserves.

 My goal this year is $3,000.00.

I hope you will help me with this project. Please give as generously as your means allow, any size donation will help us to meet our goals.   Please make checks payable to American Legion BCEC.

 

Sincerely,

Barbara (Bobbi) Horowitz Rigg
