  • Wintersville American Legion honors veterans in special way for holidays

The objective is not to decorate the graves, but to remember the lives of each individual veteran, asking participating volunteers to read the name aloud and thank them for their service each time they place a wreath, according to Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help lay the wreaths need only to show up at Memorial Cemetery at any point. The public is welcome to attend.

The Brooks-Greenwood Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will join the national Wreaths Across America event with its own ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 12 p.m.at Forest View Cemetery, Rowley Street, Winsted.

Wreaths Across America, which leads national ceremonies that honor military veterans in all 50 states and is celebrating its 25th anniversary, will hold a ceremony Saturday in Rock Hill.

"The motto of Wreaths Across America is 'Remember, Honor, Teach, '" Gray said.

Along with delivering and hanging wreaths in the cemetery, volunteers witness a ceremony honoring each branch of the United States armed forces, including the Navy, the Army and more. The ceremony will take place at Memorial Cemetery.

"With the number of wreaths we have this year and the volunteers who would like to help, we chose Gate of Heaven", Kauffman explained. To date there are over 1 million wreaths placed simultaneously in 1,200 locations at the same time and date throughout the nation.
