The purpose of the annual Wreaths Across America event is to remember, honor, and teach. On the 16th of December a large crowd of veterans, service members and community members came together to lay wreaths on the headstones of veterans laid to rest in the Evergreen Cemetery. After a very moving ceremony with speakers including Gold Star mother Sheron Jones, Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb and US Senate candidate Kelli Ward, attendees laid wreaths honoring the veterans.
This event was a great opportunity for families to teach their children about the selfless service and sacrifice made be these veterans to protect our freedom as Americans.
Post 132 was well represented at the event, with a member performing the National Anthem and the always sharp post 132 Color Guard playing Taps on the bugle.
