We have the power to honor our comrades in arms, and we’re doing something about it

The Guardians of the National Cemetery is a locally-based volunteer organization. Our sole mission is to serve as official support committee for the Washington Crossing National Cemetery, so designated by the Veterans Administration. We exist exclusively for charitable and educational purposes in order to advocate for, preserve and support the Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Bucks County on behalf of the veterans of the Armed Services of the United States of America. All of our funds, whether income or principal, and whether acquired by gift or contribution or otherwise, shall be devoted to this purpose.

RECRUIT, TRAIN, AND FUNDRAISE

We conduct volunteer recruitment and training programs. We organize fundraising efforts to support the Washington Crossing National Cemetery to provide supplementary programs, beautification and memorial programs, and the design and construction of memorials and stone monuments.

BEAUTIFICATION ENDEAVORS

We are working hard to promote the attainment of National Shrine status for the Washington Crossing National Cemetery through beautification endeavors on the cemetery grounds. One example of our efforts is the creation and maintenance of an Avenue of Flags, comprised of the US Flag donated by families of veterans who received the Burial Flag at the funeral service for their loved ones.

PLAN AND CONDUCT SPECIAL EVENTS

We strive to improve public awareness of the mission of Veterans Administration national cemeteries. We assist the staff of the Washington Crossing National Cemetery in the planning and conduct of major ceremonies and special events such as the observances of Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and other such days deemed appropriate to commemorate and honor those who served or are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, or those interred in the cemetery.
