Danbury CT’s Civil Air Patrol’s 399th Composite Squadron Part Of ‘Wreaths Across America’
Saturday December 12 in Danbury you can help honor those who've served our Country. Here's how. My Dad was a Veteran so this really warms my heart!
This Holiday Season it's time to remember that Freedom is Never Free. So to that end, Ceremonial wreaths will be placed to remember those who served, honor their sacrifices, and teach our younger generations about the high cost of our freedoms.
For nine Decembers, Civil Air Patrol members nationwide have shown their appreciation to our nation’s veterans by adorning memorials and veterans’ graves with evergreen wreaths.
Civil Air Patrol’s 399th Composite Squadron, Danbury, will have a Wreaths Across America ceremony at Wooster Cemetery and Old Kenosia Cemetery on Saturday December 12. The Wreaths Across America mission — Remember, Honor, Teach — is carried out in part by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and overseas. The Wooster Cemetery ceremony will start at 9:30 a.m. in the Veteran Section of the Cemetery (entrance from the southwest gateway). The ceremony at Old Kenosia Cemetery, located on Kenosia Avenue, will take place at 11:00 a.m. For information about the patrol click on GoCivilAirPatrol.com
My dad is not buried in either of these cemeteries, but it still brings a smile to my face to think of this heartwarming remembrance.
