The American Legion Riders Chapter 19 (American Legion Post 90) in Los Alamos is once again honored to carry out the Wreaths Across America™ program in Los Alamos County.

The Community is invited to observe and participate in the Remembrance Ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at Guaje Pines Cemetery, followed by placing the wreaths on the Veterans’ graves. This Remembrance Ceremony will take place concurrent with the Nationwide Remembrance Ceremony. The wreath-laying ceremonies are non‑political and all groups are encouraged to attend and participate in laying the wreaths.

Wreaths Across America™ is a national program designed to honor fallen Veterans of all wars at national, state and local cemeteries. The mission of Wreaths Across America™ — “Remember, Honor, Teach” — is carried out, in part, by coordinating wreath laying in all state ceremonies, and the 24 national cemeteries on foreign soil.

The annual Wreaths Across America™ is an offshoot of Arlington National Cemetery’s annual laying of holiday wreaths.
