FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo.

Mrs. Stacy Wilson, the cemetery director, reached out to the naval detachment looking volunteers willing to help with weeding and mulching. The high volume of burials at the cemetery keeps the cemetery staff busy and the task of spreading mulch can take them more than a month on average to complete.

However, because of the Seabee's and their “Can-Do” mentality, CSFE Leonard Wood staff and students were able to complete the entire project in just a little more than four hours.

 “I have been with the Missouri Veterans Cemetery-Fort Leonard Wood for more than a decade and have met many volunteer groups through the years” said Wilson. “The Fort Leonard Wood Navy Detachment is by far the finest group of individuals that I have had the pleasure of meeting.” 

Wilson and her team were appreciative of the Seabee’s willingness to help and the speed they were able to complete the much needed task.

“These fine men and women are not volunteering because they have to, they are volunteering because they want to-for no other reason than to pay respect to their fellow veterans and give back to their community,” said Wilson. “I appreciate their generosity and everything they do for us and the families we serve.”

The CSFE detachment at Leonard Wood is constantly on the lookout for volunteer opportunities to spread the word about the Seabees' long-standing heritage and commitment to serving the community.
