Honor Wreaths for Veterans

December 19, 2020 @ 11:00 am

The not-for-profit group, Honor Wreaths for Veterans and Wreaths Across America is asking for help to ensure fallen veterans are remembered and honored this Christmas.

Each December, on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out locally through a wreath-laying ceremony at Mounds National Cemetery.  The City of Anna Cemetery is proud to take part in this years ceremony on December 19, 2020 at 11 a.m.

The wreath-laying ceremony is not purely for the decoration of graves but is done in the remembrance of the lives of the brave soldiers at rest.  The organization believes that a person dies twice:  once when they take their final breath, and later, the last time their name is spoken.  Therefore, volunteers are asked to say the name of the veteran and take a moment to thank them for their service to our country as they place the wreath on the grave.  This small act is meant to keep the memory of the veterans alive.
