Wreaths Across America Honors Local Veterans


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.

This year’s ceremony will be conducted at 10 a.m. Dec. 12  throughout New Mexico, and specifically at Los Alamos’ Guaje Pines Cemetery, which is officially recognized by Wreaths Across America.

The American Legion, Frank G. Frainier Post 90, American Legion Riders Chapter 19, in Los Alamos is once again honored to carry out the Wreaths Across America program in Los Alamos County. The sponsored wreaths will be placed on the veterans’ gravesites at the Guaje Pines Cemetery, following the ceremony.

Dignitaries and special guests have been invited to speak in honor of our veterans and active military. The wreath-laying ceremonies are non-political and all groups are invited to attend.
