DECEMBER 15 IS NATIONAL WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY!
This is a day that Veterans are HONORED and REMEMBERED through the laying of wreaths on Veterans graves at National Cemeteries all across America. Our local Zachary Taylor National cemetery has over 3,000 Veteran graves. Of that 3,000, they receive ONLY 75-80 wreaths every year. If you would like to help make a change to that number, you can purchase a wreath for $15 through the following link: www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/KY0115P!
**This link is very important because it will ensure that the wreath will be sent to our local Cemetery**
You can also send wreaths to Veteran families in addition to sending one to the cemetery.
If you prefer to pay by cash/check, contact Joshua Herriott at joshua.r.herriott@uscg.mil or by phone at (502) 779-5343.
You can also help by volunteering to lay the Wreaths on December 15 at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery. Family and Friends are welcome! Use the link above and select volunteer or contact Joshua Herriott.
