Wreaths Across America San Diego Welcomes 5th Cemetery!

Oak Hill Cemetery in Escondido, with 4,000 veterans laid to rest. Carrie Foster, President of VFW Auxiliary 1513 is excited to lead the Ceremony to remember and honor these veterans. We look forward to seeing the Escondido community come out and participate, they support our veterans along with many active veteran services organizations.

Wreaths Across America national logoWreaths Across America is a national organization on a mission to REMEMBER those who’ve served in the military, HONOR their service and sacrifice, and TEACH others to do the same. Each December, wreaths are laid upon the gravesites at National Cemeteries across all 50 states.

Wreaths Across America – San Diego supports Ft. Rosecrans and Miramar National Cemeteries, Greenwood Memorial Park and Valley Center Cemetery to carry out the mission to “remember, honor, and teach.” WAA San Diego partners with individuals, groups, businesses, organizations, and corporations to sponsor wreaths through fundraising. Additional wreaths are brought to San Diego to cover every site at participating cemeteries. 

The Wreaths Across America story began over 20 years ago when Worcester Wreath Company (a for-profit commercial business from Harrington, Maine) began a tradition of placing wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery.

Over the years, Worcester Wreath has donated countless wreaths which were placed by volunteers in a wreath laying ceremony each December.

May 2018 - At the Annual Wreaths Across America (WAA) recognition event at Fort Myers, Virginia, home of the UA Army Old Guard attached to Arlington National Cemetery, Tim Campion was honored as a veteran for his US Navy service during the Vietnam War and awarded a Veterans Pin from Major General James Jackson US Army (ret).

Tim has actively supported WAA bringing wreaths to San Diego via corporate sponsors for over 10 years.

Major General James Jackson US Army (ret) Director of the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration program with the Department of Defense presents Tim Campion with a Vietnam Veteran. The Commemorative program is meant to Welcome Home all Veterans who served during that war and did not get the type of recognition they deserved many years ago. Some WAA events in San Diego participate in this commemorative at their ceremonies.

Tim stated, “it was a distinct pleasure to meet in person Karen Worcester, Executive Director of WAA, and Morrill Worcester the founder of WAA.”
