Wreaths Across America® recognizes the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children and others about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms. This annual ceremony will honor veterans and family members interred at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery. The service is open to the community, after which guests are invited to assist with pacing wreath on individual gravesites.
Wreaths placed on graves are only possible through the generosity of public donations. WDVA collaborates with the Ladies and Gentlemen of the Washington State Veterans Cemetery, a registered 501c3, on event planning and public donations.
