This year, volunteers prepared over 21,000 wreaths, the most they have ever had. Crusaders for Veterans President/Founder Kevin Cuttill said, “So, we come out to honor their memories because we don’t want anyone forgotten. I’m a Gold Star father. I’ve got a son that’s buried, you know, Julia, her dad is buried out here. So, we have got loved ones out here. It is an emotional tie in with everyone.”

The wreath laying ceremony is Saturday at 11 a.m. Anyone is welcome to attend.
