Honoring Vets In Marseilles

Posted by wlpo on December 10, 2012

This Saturday morning, over 700 wreath laying ceremonies will happen simultaneously across the country.  One of those places is in Marseilles.

The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial is the site locally to honor veterans during the “Wreaths Across America Day”.  Seven wreaths will be put at the wall in Marseilles to honor the Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and POW/MIA.

The Wreaths Across America idea started over 20 years ago when were laid in Arlington National Cemetery.
