Every year an event known as Wreaths Across America takes place to help decorate the graves of veterans for the holiday season. It’s an event meant to simply and solemnly REMEMBER the fallen, HONOR those who serve our country and TEACH others the value of freedom.
This year’s event takes place December 10 at the State Capitol Building in Olmpia. It begins at 12:15 on the third floor of the rotunda, and if you’re in Olympia I’d encourage you to attend. If not, you can visit the website to find other events being held locally.
Wreaths Across America is a national event that involves over 800 locations and places memorial wreaths at over 500,000 graves of US Soldiers. See more at: http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/
