Each year Fishers of Men for Veterans helps the Cpl Joe McCarthy Foundation to raise funds to purchase and lay wreaths on the graves of 350 Veteran's graves and those Killed In Action in the St. Johns, Springerville, and Eager cemetaries. These wreaths are placed on the gravestones before Christmas .
Fishers of Men for Veterans will be at the Apache County Fair September 7th trough 10th, 2016, selling Snow Cones and Popcorn to help pay for those wreaths.
On September 6th, 12 years ago, St. Johns resident and U.S. Marine Corporal Joseph McCarthy, gave his life while protecting the American way of life. St. John's Police Department honor Corporal McCarthy's memory everyday, as the flags that fly high above the department are flown proudly in his honor. Please never forget those men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Semper Fi Joe!
