Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1095 plans to hold a Wreaths Across America event on Saturday, Dec. 14 at Oak Grove Cemetery in Delaware, Ohio. The public is invited to attend.
The goal is to place a wreath on every veteran’s grave, chapter members told the Delaware Gazette. There are an estimated 3,000 veterans interred at the cemetery.
Local businesses and organizations have donated to help fund the purchase of wreaths, including a $1,500 donation from the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
Individual wreaths are $15, and purchasers can designate wreaths in memory of someone and/or designate specific grave placements.
