Veterans and volunteers can help lay wreaths at Shiloh National Cemetery

DEC. 14 – A Wreaths Across America ceremony will be held at Shiloh National Cemetery on Saturday, Dec. 16, at 11 a.m.

“Wreaths will be placed at 510 graves, demonstrating the non-profit’s mission as ‘Remember. Honor. Teach.’” said C.D. Rickman, Hardin County Veterans Services director.

Veterans and volunteers are invited to help lay the wreaths. This year’s theme is “I’m an American.”

The history of Wreaths Across America began with a young boy’s visit to Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia.
