Staff Report

Members of the American Legion, family and friends gathered at Guaje Pines Cemetery as part of the national Wreaths Across America 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.

Guaje Pines Cemetery is officially recognized by Wreaths Across America. The American Legion, Frank G. Frainier Post 90, American Legion Riders Chapter 19, in Los Alamos was again honored to carry out the Wreaths Across America program in Los Alamos County. The sponsored wreaths were placed on the veterans’ gravesites at the Guaje Pines Cemetery.
