Wreaths Across American Volunteer Opportunity
When: December 14, 2019
Where: Arlignton National Cemetery
Once again the Metro Washington, DC Chapter is helping lay wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery for the national Wreaths Across America Day. We are encouraging all alumni to attend this amazing event as we help celebrate and remember our fallen service members for the holidays. With large crowds expected, long security lines and unreliable cell service we are not doing a meet up this year but we are encouraging all alumni to help lay wreaths. If you can not attend but would still like to help you can help by donating a wreath at https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/. So join us as we help Wreaths Across America in their quest to, " Remember our fallen U.S. Veterans. Honor those who serve. Teach your children the value of freedom."
Advice is to get there early as gates open at 8am and to also go to the farther reaches of the cemetery to lay wreaths. For more information and up to date news visit Arlington National Cemeteries websiteat https://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/Wreaths-2019
