Wreaths 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 serves Ft. Rosecrans and Miramar National Cemeteries (view a previous ceremony) to carry out the mission to “remember, honor, and teach.” WAA San Diego partners with individuals, groups, businesses, organizations, and corporations to sponsor wreaths and through fundraising additional wreaths are brought to San Diego so we can reach our goal to cover every site at Ft. Rosecrans and Miramar National Cemeteries. We have partnered with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration. Join us on December 14 (at either cemetery) for a wreath ceremony at 9:00 a.m., as we honor our veterans who served during the Vietnam War with “A Hero’s Welcome!”
Teaching the next generation to honor and remember.
Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work. Yesterday was an amazing and beautiful day of Remembrance (2012).
We had 12 family members participate, representing 3 generations of descendents. Two of their great granddaughters were given the privilege of laying the wreath at their grave site. Neither of which ever got to meet my dad, but have heard the stories we all tell and definitely understand the sacrifice he and all service members make.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - Michael
