Wreaths Across America



By Shiloh Ireland

October 29, 2023 (Lakeside) -- Wreaths Across America is offering an opportunity for  San Diego County residents, businesses, schools, fraternal organizations to celebrate the holidays and honor local veterans.There are over 120,000 souls interred at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery and over 16,000 at Miramar National Cemetery. Join me in sharing this link and viewing QR code and contributing.

How does this work? You may purchase one or two wreaths for either Rosecrans or Miramar (either for someone you name, or a gravesite they will choose).  You can add information about the veteran.  If you buy two wreaths, a third wreath will be placed at a deserving veteran’s grave chosen by the cemetery.

The wreaths are genuine wreaths that arrive fresh from Maine. The deadline is November 26th. to place your order. Please consider this special gift and memory honoring our Veterans.
