Posted on 08/23/2012 11:20:31 AM PDT by SandRat
MIAP is a nationwide project with the purpose of finding and identifying the cremated remains of American veterans that have been left in funeral homes and seeing that they are buried with honors as our nation promised it would do when these men and women signed up to serve in the armed forces. To that end, the MIAP Arizona organization will be conducting interment services for 19 veterans at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Sierra Vista on Wednesday, September 12th, 2012. We are looking to have some volunteers post flyers with businesses along the route from the Adair Funeral Home to I-10. After I spoke to you I asked our communications director if we needed help with flyers in Sierra Vista and she said that would be great. She is in the process of getting a list of businesses along the route and getting flyers printed. So, we will print flyers advertising our event with the date and time of the funeral procession, and encourage those businesses to support and honor these 19 fallen Veterans. Maybe flying large US Flags, standing and waving flags along the Alvernon and Palo Verde routes. Along with delivering the flyer to businesses along the our way, they could explain the MIAP mission, ask for support and let them know they are welcome to attend services at the Adair Funeral Home @ 9AM. Maybe some Scouts would like to be there as well, but it is a school-day morning. You can also find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ArizonaMIAP. I can be reached at 520-841-0888 or my email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIAP is respectfully requesting all Veteran groups and Patriot individuals to be part of an interment with honors for 14 indigent and homeless Veterans.
It will be our honor as the Patriot Guard to stand a flag line and honor those Veterans that have gone before us.
