Milledgeville Cemetery Participates in 'Wreaths Across America'

 

On Saturday, December 10th  Milledgeville hosts a “Wreaths Across America” (WAA) ceremony starting at noon. 

That's according to a Georgia State Veterans Cemeteries news release.

“Wreaths Across America” began twenty years ago at Arlington National Cemetery to honor all those who are buried there.  Since that time all national and state veterans cemeteries across the country have coordinated and/or hosted similar wreath laying events to promote WAA’s mission about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching America’s youth  about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our liberties and freedom, “Remember, Honor, and Teach” patriotism.
