Greater Kansas City Chapter of the Association of the US Army (KS0034P) is supporting Wreaths Across America, a national non-profit organization whose mission is to:
REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans,
HONOR those who serve, and
TEACH your children the value of freedom.
Our participation in this program is to help expand the support to Wreaths Across America’s mission and to provide an opportunity for members of the KCAUSA Chapter and KC Metro community to participate in a local wreath-laying ceremony on December 17th each year. Volunteers can participate in any local ceremony they wish, as shown at the Wreaths Across America’s website.
This year, KCAUSA’s sponsored wreaths will support the Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery at Fort Leavenworth, KS. Those who wish to take part in Fort Leavenworth’s ceremony can partner with us for transportation and access to the military installation. Also, for those interested, KCAUSA Leaders are available to give a driving-tour of the post after the ceremony.
What is a Veteran’s Wreath?
