Please join us on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at 12:00 noon for the opening ceremony prior to laying wreaths on Veterans’ graves at Rose Hill Cemetery and White Oak Cemetery! We are honoring 1,140 Veterans this year.
Why We Do It?
We understand we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.
In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We hope you will join us at any of our more than 3,400 participating locations to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget.
We will never forget.
