Wreaths Across America Honors America’s Fallen Soldiers

WGNS Radio, Murfreesboro, TN

Since 1992 Wreaths Across America has honored the sacrifice of our Military Veterans at National Cemeteries across the United States by laying a memorial wreath on the graves of veterans. When a single Wreath is laid on the grave of a veteran, volunteers are asked to say the name of the veteran.

Last year over 700,000 Wreaths were laid on the grave of a veteran across 1,000 national cemeteries. For fallen soldiers of wars long past this may be the only time their name is spoken and remembered. Wreaths Across America is dedicated to remembering the sacrifices of our military men and women.

The public is invited to join the Smyrna Civil Air Patrol and the National Park Service this Christmas season as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Join us at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, Dec 17th, at Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for our local Wreath laying ceremony.
