ATLANTA FLIGHT SCHOOL owner, Evanthe Papastathis of Skybound Aviation, was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from the Department of Veterans Affairs on Saturday, May 25, during the Memorial Day event at Georgia National Cemetery for her relentless support to the Wreaths Across America Events which she oversees. Dignitaries included the Atlanta Area Council Boy Scouts Leaders, representatives from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Cemetery Director, the Head of Georgia National Guard, and the Governor of Georgia.
Ms. Papastathis has overseen the Wreaths Across America events each December since 2007and has personally solicited Wreath sponsorship throughout the years to be able to place a wreath at every headstone and throughout the Columbarium at the Georgia National Cemetery.
This Certificate of Appreciation reaffirms the commitment and support for Wreaths Across America by Evanthe Papastathis and her Atlanta flight school. By supporting Wreaths Across America, Skybound Aviation and its pilots strengthens their commitment to remembering and honoring our fallen military heroes and their families.
On December 14, 2013 - National Wreaths Across America Day - Wreaths Across America will join forces with volunteer pilots from Skybound Aviation at Georgia National Cemetery and Marietta National Cemetery in the morning. Together, these volunteers will lay wreaths at the headstones of our fallen heroes in order to honor the various past, present, and future members of the military and their families.
Evanthe Papastathis is the owner of the Atlanta flight school, as well the Location Leader of Wreaths Across America at Georgia National Cemetery. “The first time I held this event I thought I was doing this for me; however, when I looked out at the crowd and saw all those faces I knew I was doing this for them as well. It is my hope to be able to place a wreath at every grave every year. This is a daunting challenge as so many are laid to rest daily at the new cemetery, Georgia National Cemetery,” said Papastathis.
