On Saturday December 14, 2019, members of the Rutherford County community will gather at Stones River National Cemetery to honor veterans during the holiday season as part of Wreaths Across America Day.
Our local Civil Air Patrol Squadrons have volunteered once again to conduct the Wreaths Across America ceremony this year at Stones River National Cemetery. The program will begin at 11 AM on Saturday December 14, 2019 at the cemetery flag pole. Parking for the event will be in the visitor center parking lot.
Specially designated wreaths for the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, and POW/MIA will be presented and placed at the cemetery flag pole. Additional wreaths will decorate graves throughout the national cemetery honoring veterans from the Civil War through Vietnam.
You can sponsor a wreath for this event and/or volunteer to help us place them at https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/17157/Overview/?relatedId=150000.
