Across America at Fort Snelling National Cemetery
REMEMBER the Fallen.
. . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children
the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Fort
Snelling National Cemetery 's Wreaths Across America.
We are living in
unprecedented times and all of us are making pivots
in our lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The
state of Minnesota has mandated a change in our
annual placing and participation Wreaths Across
America. Unfortunately, the event will not be
held on December 19 as previously scheduled.
The committee is
hosting a virtual ceremony, details will be posted
on social media for you and your loved ones to
view. The wreath placement event will happen but
is restricted to a select group of volunteers.
If you have a family member you would still like
to be honored with a wreath, the volunteers would
love to honor your request and place it for you.
All wreaths will
be placed as we have for decades before. If you
wish to visit your loved one after the wreath
is placed, you can do so on 20 December or later.
Thank you for your
understanding in these unusual times. We hope
that everyone stays safe and healthy.
Thank you so much
for supporting Fort Snelling National Cemetery
and Wreaths Across
