Wibberley's father, Thomas, mentioned the fund when he was interviewed on CNN's "Larry King Live" on Oct. 13, the day after his son died in the bombing of the Navy destroyer USS Cole in a Yemeni port.

Arnold Hammann, the principal at Washington County Technical High School, from which Craig Wibberley graduated in 1999, said donations have come from numerous states, including four from California, Most are from Maryland and the Tri-State area, he said.

"Yesterday, we had 41 pieces of mail," Hammann said Wednesday.

The donations have ranged from $10 to $1,000. He said most are in the $35 to $50 range, or about what someone might spend on flowers.
