Greater Kansas City Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (KS0036P) is supporting Wreaths Across America, a national nonprofit 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 the third Saturday of December each year. Volunteers can participate in any local ceremony they wish, as shown at the Wreaths Across America’s website.
KCAUSA’s sponsored wreaths will support one of the five locations in the KC Metro.
1. Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery – Fort Leavenworth, KS
2. Leavenworth National Cemetery – Leavenworth, KS
3. Longview Funeral Home & Cemetery – Kansas City, MO
4. Johnson County Memorial Gardens Cemetery – Overland Park, KS
5. Missouri State Veterans Cemetery – Higginsville, MO
