Wreaths Across America 2022 – San Francisco National Cemetery

Earlier today, December 17, 2022  our U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) Arkansas Division participated in the Wreaths Across America that was held at San Francisco National Cemetery at the Presidio of San Francisco to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.  Several members of Branch 25 were also in attendance to support our cadets in this endeavour.

Below are some pictures from the event.

Below are a couple of videos from the day.

Finally, at the end of the day one of our members placed a wreath at our cenotaph at Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Can we count on you to join us on December 17th?

Members are encouraged to attend this event at the National Cemetery at the San Francisco Presidio, followed by a no host luncheon at the Presidio Cafe.


Arlington Cemetery

 Dear Michael Barbour,

 

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our year long mission to Remember, Honor and Teach, is in part carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 3,600 participating locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. We trace our organization’s history back to a wreath-laying event held at Arlington National Cemetery in December of 1992—more than 30 years ago!—and today it has grown far beyond that small act of remembrance to become an international movement supported by hundreds of thousands of volunteers honoring the sacrifices of millions of our nation’s heroes.

 

Laying a live, balsam veteran’s wreath on an individual headstone for one of our fallen heroes and saying their name out loud is a unique and individual experience. It is a small gesture of gratitude for the freedoms Americans enjoy each day, and we are so proud to play a part in making sure that the legacy of duty, service, and sacrifice of each veteran is never forgotten.

 

Can we count on you to join us on December 17th?

This year, National Wreaths Across America Day is on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022, and will take place at more than 3,600 participating locations nationwide – we’ve grown by 500+ locations this year! Please consider joining us again in supporting the mission in a community near you, whether through the sponsorship of a $15 veteran’s wreath, and/or by volunteering to place wreaths and say the name of each servicemember laid to rest out loud.

Volunteers will place wreaths at more than 3,600 Wreaths Across America locations on December 17, 2022. With each ceremony, we ensure that the legacy of duty, service, and sacrifice of our veterans is never forgotten.

In years past, your generous gift of remembrance helped to make National Wreaths Across America Day possible in your community. If you are unable to sponsor a wreath, we certainly encourage you to volunteer to participate so you can continue to take part in this important mission to Remember, Honor, Teach, and to bring a friend or family member to experience the impact of placing the wreaths and joining your community in this annual tradition.

Thank you so much for remembering America’s finest.

Remember – Honor – Teach

With gratitude,
