On December 15th, 2018 we will be placing wreaths on graves of our veterans, at the Cemetery of the Alleghenies.

This year, Homewood Platoon has secured a coach bus to transport volunteers, including some of Homewood's youth. The wreath laying ceremonies will take place from 11:15 AM - 1:00 PM in Bridgeville. Afterwards, we will be returning to the Homewood YMCA and hosting a holiday celebration where volunteers will be asked to connect with local youth, participate in activities with them, and share stories of their military experience and continued service.
