Wreaths Across America
VFW Auxiliary Post 1513 lead the first Wreaths Across America ceremony and wreath laying at Oak Hill Cemetery in Escondido in December 2018. The community sponsored over 500 wreaths; more than 50 individuals including children enjoyed the short ceremony.
We are unique, as our ceremony begins at 1:00 pm. We invite you and your family to join us on Saturday, December 14, 2019 and place a wreath on your loved one’s site or honor one of the 4,000 veterans laid to rest.
Wreaths Across America is a national organization on a mission to REMEMBER those who’ve served in the military, HONOR their service and sacrifice, and TEACH others to do the same. Each December, wreaths are laid upon the grave sites at cemeteries across all 50 states and in many countries around the world including Normandy, France.
We are a part of Wreaths Across America – San Diego for more information please see the website at www.waasandiego.com and click on Oak Hill or any of the other 7 cemeteries participating in San Diego County including Valley Center.
