Remember the fallen; Honor those who serve; Teach our children the value of freedom.

Donate today and join CAP members December 16, 2017, for the Wreaths Across America Remembrance Ceremony at Greene County Courthouse front lawn in Waynesburg, Pa.

 

Greene County, Pennsylvania  -- Members of Civil Air Patrol’s Greene County Composite Squadron 606 invite the public to sponsor remembrance wreaths for placement on the graves of veterans at Green Mount Cemetery (Waynesburg, Pa.) on December 16, to honor those who served the U.S. as well as current military members. Sponsors can e20225130_Cadets placing wreaths at Bushnell.jpgven designate where the wreaths will be laid in the local community.

The wing’s efforts coincide with Wreaths Across America tributes occurring simultaneously across the nation, including Arlington National Cemetery, where the initiative began 22 years ago with the placement of 5,000 wreaths donated by Morrell Worcester, owner of Harrington, Maine’s Worcester Wreath Co. In 2006, Worcester and his family formed Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit initiative that recognizes the courage and sacrifices of U.S. veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of the fallen during the year end holiday season.

As a major partner in Wreaths Across America for seven Decembers now, CAP has adorned memorials and veterans’ graves with evergreen wreaths to make sure the sacrifices of the nation’s soldiers are not forgotten. Last year, members of the public sponsored the placement of more than 325,000 wreaths at 700-plus cemetery or memorial sites across the U.S. and abroad. More than 600 CAP squadrons participated in last year’s Wreaths Across America ceremonies, in which wreaths were placed at cemeteries and memorials in all 50 states, as well as 20 locations overseas.
