Wreaths Across America
The National Wreaths Across America event will begin promptly at noon Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016 in the Veteran's section of Forest Hills Memorial Park. Following the ceremony honoring veterans, wreaths will be placed at veteran markers at Forest Hills.

We have 1,020 veterans interred at Forest Hills, and would like to honor each and every veteran!
"We encourage every volunteer who places a wreath on a veteran's grave to say that veteran's name aloud and take a moment to thank them for their service to our country. It's a small act that goes a long way toward keeping the memory of our veterans alive. We are not here to “decorate graves." We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives." — Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America
What began in 1992 with a trailer load of wreaths laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery has now become a national organization with over 1,100 participating locations - all focused on the mission to Remember - Honor - Teach.
