Wreaths Across America is a national program designed to honor fallen veterans of all wars at the national, state and local cemeteries. The mission of Wreaths Across America, “Remember, Honor, Teach” is carried out, in part, by coordinating wreath laying in all states ceremonies and the 24 national cemeteries on foreign soil.
This year’s ceremony will be conducted at 10 a.m., Dec. 14 throughout New Mexico, and specifically at Los Alamos’ Guaje Pines Cemetery which is officially recognized by Wreaths Across America.
