This year, National Wreaths Across America Day will be held on Saturday, December 16th, 2023. Everyone from the Big Country can celebrate this at the Texas State Veterans Cemetery, Abilene TX at 11:00 am.
Wreaths Across America (WAA) will have the posting of the colors by Abilene High Jr ROTC cadets, a flyover by the experimental aircraft association, a guest speaker from Dyess AFB and the laying of wreaths on all service monuments by Cooper High School Jr ROTC Cadets and on all 2,800 gravesites at the cemetery.
WAA will be joining more than two million volunteers and supporters who will gather to Remember, Honor and Teach at more than 4,000 participating locations in all 50 states.
Sponsored wreaths are placed on grave markers at state and national veterans’ cemeteries, as well as at local, community cemeteries each December. Abilene’s local Veterans Cemetery has been participating in WAA for the last 13 years and has been able to place over 14,500 wreaths.
