Monument in honor of Cpl. Andrew Hutchins
"...--- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."
Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, Novermber 19, 1863
Vetlands is a veterans' organization, founded by civilians, who never served in the Military, to express sincere thanks to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have sacrificed so that all citizens of the United States can live in peace and pursue happiness and prosperity.
Vetlands seeks donations of land throughout the United States to be held, improved, managed, and disposed for the benefit of war veterans, members of the United States Military, and the families of those who have died in combat. Vetlands, Inc. is tax exempt and donations to Vetlands are tax deductible according to section 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Veterans, and members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families can benefit in several ways:
They can use the properties free of charge for recreational enjoyment.
Memorials to deceased war veterans and soldiers will be placed at properties.
Revenue generated from disposal of properties will be used to assist disabled and needy war veterans and the families of soldiers who died in service.
Vetlands Founders: Colie and Nora O'Donnell
