Wreaths Across America 2023

The photos below show the memories of an incredible Wreaths Across America day focused on Remember- Honor and Teach.

Our sincere thanks to all who paricipated in this year's Wreaths Across America ceremony, those who's support made this event possible and everyone who joined us to place the remembrance wreaths.

Special thanks to 100-year-old, WWII Battle of the Bulge survivor and Bronze Star recipient, Harvey Lafleur for presenting the wreath in recognition of all who have served in the United States Army.

Preparations before the ceremony:

Thanks to King Gray Coach Line owners, Dennis King and Matt Gray, for providing 6 of their buses. An incredible 1,470 volunteers were shuttled from Six Flags to the Veterans Memorial Cemetery and back again after the ceremony and wreath laying, quickly and in comfort!
