Welcome to the Friends of Mississippi Veterans
Web Site

The Friends of Mississippi Veterans (FOMV) was organized in 2007 as a support group for Mississippi veterans. The first project was the Mississippi State Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Newton. This cemetery is now in operation and there have been more than 550 interments. A second cemetery will be in operation in 2017 at Kilmichael. Thanks to the support of corporations, businesses and individuals, both of these projects are now realities for our veterans and their spouses. Contact information is listed later.

Our major projects now are the four VA nursing homes in Mississippi and the "Wreaths Across America" program. Each November, in connection with Veterans Day, we visit and present gifts to the 600 men and women in the nursing homes. "Wreaths Across America" is a national program of placing Christmas wreaths on veterans' graves in mid-December. FOMV has agreed to underwrite, to plan the program, and to otherwise carry out this project at both the Newton and Kilmichael cemeteries. The families and friends of veterans buried there are invited to participate in the events; and groups, individuals and organizations are encouraged to be involved. In December 2016 we placed wreaths on 530 graves at Newton; obviously this number will increase each year. Beginning in 2017, we will provide wreaths for the Kilmichael cemetery as well as the Newton cemetery.
