Veterans and Their Families make unimaginable sacrifices for our freedom, and they deserve our utmost respect. At The Kiwanis Club of Big Lagoon Foundation Inc, we strive to honor veterans and to teach this respect to the next generation. In partnership with Wreaths Across America, we collect funds for wreaths for the graves in the Barrancas National Cemetery. Through our efforts, we hope to teach young people in our community to remember and honor the sacrifices veterans have made for our country.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." — Ronald Reagan
