If you have a family member or friend buried at Florence National Cemetery, you may designate that a wreath be placed on that specific grave. All we need is the full name of the deceased veteran and, if possible, the location of the grave.
For any individual or business that sponsors 10 or more wreaths, their name will be listed in the program published for the ceremony to be held at Florence National Cemetery on Saturday, December 14, 2013.
The wreath-laying ceremony will be held this year at the Florence National Cemetery at noon on Saturday, December 14, 2013. Families are encouraged to attend and participate in laying the wreaths. It is a very moving experience, a great way to honor our veterans, and a great teaching opportunity for our young people.
