BREVARD COUNTY • MIMS, FLORIDA – Last Saturday, Wreaths Across America was at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery 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 wreath-laying ceremony was part of Wreaths Across America.
All 136 VA national cemeteries receive at least seven wreaths, one for each service branch, one for Merchant Marine and one for Prisoners of War and those Missing In Action (POW/MIA).
Retired Rear Admiral Wayne Justice delivered an inspirational keynote speech.
This is the 13th year of Wreaths Across America, a nationwide program which distributes holiday wreaths as a tribute to Veterans laid to rest at VA national cemeteries and state Veterans cemeteries.
Through this program, participating organizations recognize Veterans, active duty military and their families.
The goal is to remind the public at this time of year to remember Veterans, to honor their service, and to teach children the value of freedom.
