Holiday Wreath-laying to Honor Veterans

Wreaths placed on grave markers to honor and remember our Nation's Veterans

Hampton National Cemetery will host Wreaths Across America, Dec. 10, at 12 p.m.  The holiday wreath-laying ceremony is to honor and remember our nation’s Veterans.  Veterans service organizations and citizens are coordinating the event to honor Veterans of each branch of the military, the Merchant Marine as well as Prisoners of War and those still Missing in Action (POW/MIA).  Veterans, family members and others are welcome to attend the event located at the Hampton National Cemetery on Cemetery Rd at Marshall Ave., Hampton, VA.

The Worcester Wreath Company, through a campaign called Wreaths Across America, began donating holiday wreaths in tribute to Veterans laid to rest at VA’s 131 national cemeteries and state Veterans cemeteries in 2006.  For each of the past 20 years, they have donated wreaths for gravesites at Arlington National Cemetery. The Civil Air Patrol is once again coordinating wreath ceremonies around the country. For more information on this event, visit the Wreaths Across America website at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.
