Wreaths Across America is an annual event honoring the brave men and women laid to rest in America’s National Cemeteries.
Many people in the Winchester community came out to pay tribute to our nation’s heroes at Winchester National Cemetery by placing a wreath on a soldier’s grave.
Each year, Winchester National Cemetery is hoping to get closer to their goal of filling the entire cemetery so each veteran is recognized. The cemetery has more then 5,500 graves.
Last year, 600 wreaths were donated and this year they more than doubled that amount. They received 2,500 wreaths and had more volunteers than ever before.
Each wreath costs $15 dollars and donations for Wreaths Across America are accepted throughout the entire year.
