Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, Wreaths Across America's mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
Wreaths are laid on the graves of veterans across all 50 states at exactly the same time as wreaths are being laid on graves of veterans in Arlington National Cemetery at noon Eastern Standard Time.
For more information visit their official site Wreaths Across America or to learn more about their story .
As soon as the 2021 date is released, we will post it here on this page. The Wreaths Across America will be at Kershaw City Cemetery (SCKSCK) located on Edwards Avenue in Kershaw, SC to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
The Kershaw City Cemetery has an estimated 3,000 graves with approximately 500 Veterans. There are some graves that are not marked identifying that they are a Veteran that if not identified on a list will be unintentially missed during the Wreaths Across America.
Did you know that with the proper military documentation a VA Marker can be ordered for FREE? For more information go to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
If you have a loved one in the Kershaw City Cemetery who is a Veteran, does not have a VA Marker and has not received a wreath during the Wreaths Across America Ceremony please contact the Kershaw City Cemetery.
REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
