On December 13, 2014, National Wreaths Across America Day, remembrance wreaths will be placed at the headstones of fallen veterans at more than 900 locations across the country and overseas. A remembrance ceremony will be held locally at Hampton National Cemetery, Hampton, VA, that day at 12:00 to ensure that the individuals who served to protect the freedoms of our country are not and never will be forgotten.
National wreath-laying ceremonies are coordinated by Wreaths Across America, a non-profit organization founded by Maine businessman, Morrill Worcester, in 1992 to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. The organization’s mission of “Remember, Honor, Teach” is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December at Arlington, as well as hundreds of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. Coordinating the local event, the Navy Wives Clubs of America, Peninsula-Norfolk 91 is working hard to fulfill this mission under the 2014 central theme “Don’t Say I Should Have, Say I Did!”
