Welcome to Chapter VA 4
Historic Fredericksburg, Virginia
We hope you enjoy visiting our website, and encourage you to contact us with any concerns or questions. Our chapter was established in February 2009 and our membership continues to grow in friendship and support for our military members and for each other. We’re here for you!
Our members work hard to provide ongoing support for our active duty service members and our veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. We dedicate our time and energy providing our troops with care packages, letters of appreciation from local school kids, and fundraising through a grateful community always eager and willing to show their support.
We hope you will consider becoming a member of our great organization. As mothers of service members, we have so much in common, and together we can accomplish much. We are a sisterhood of caring moms, family and friends supporting each other and our troops.
Our location is one hour south of the Washington DC area, If you are visiting our nation’s capital, be sure to check out the many things our community has to offer. Visit the Welcome Guide to Fredericksburg. Thanks for visiting our site!

Our chapter is a proud sponsor of Wreaths Across America.
Wreaths Across America is an organization dedicated to Remembering, Honoring, and Teaching, about the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform.. This is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.
This year the national wreath laying day will be Saturday 13 December 2014.
There will be a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia to spread our the message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
Consider making a donation for a wreath to be placed at Arlington National cemetery or Quantico National Cemetery.
