Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, Wreathes Across America's mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. This year, the Portland 1st Platoon will join in, and be a part of this amazing tradition.

Remember. Honor. Teach.

REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans.

HONOR those who serve.

TEACH your children the value of freedom.

On 12/16/2017, we will place wreaths on veteran gravestones at Willamette Cemetery .

We are happy that you are willing to help with the Wreath Across America ceremony at the Willamette National Cemetery. Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

- Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.

- Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so please be on time.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.
