Wreaths Across America 2017

Wreaths Across America, December 16 at 11:00 a.m.

Arlington National Cemetery

Coppell Republican Women and Rolling Oaks Memorial Center in Coppell will be participating in Wreaths Across America at 11:00 a.m. (Central Time) on December 16, 2017.  The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember our fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve and teach your children the value of freedom.  This mission is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.  All ceremonies around the country will occur simultaneously, at noon Eastern Time.

The Coppell Republican Women, assisted by military veterans and community volunteers, will lay 54 wreaths at the cemetery:  7 wreaths representing the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Merchant Marine and POW/MIA and 47 wreaths laid on the headstones of U.S. veterans buried at Rolling Oaks Memorial Center. Family members of these veterans have been invited to attend and lay wreaths on the graves of their family member. When the wreath is laid, we ask all family and volunteers to “Say Their Names”.
