Annual Wreaths Across America program to be observed in La Salle and Marseilles

Posted by wlpo on December 12, 2016

At 11 o’clock Saturday morning, wreaths will be laid simultaneously on veteran’s graves in about a thousand locations in the United States. Two of those ceremonies are in the Illinois Valley.

In La Salle, a “Wreaths Across America” ceremony is at the veteran’s home. The other ceremony in the Illinois Valley takes place at The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial. Wreaths for each panel of the wall will be laid.

The Wreaths Across America idea started in 1992 with wreaths laid at Arlington National Cemetery.
