Remember and Honor:
The American Legion Oro Valley Auxiliary Unit is a local community partner of Wreaths Across America, a 501 c 3 national organization. WAA’s mission is to Remember and Honor those who have served our nation in uniform. Last year, more than 1.2 million volunteers placed more than 2.4 million Remembrance Wreaths across the nation and abroad with 38,565 wreaths placed at 52 Arizona cemeteries. The deadline for the receipt of orders for Remembrance Wreaths is November 28, 2022, to assure timely delivery. The Remembrance Wreaths are shipped directly to participating cemeteries. The wreaths will be simultaneously placed at all participating cemeteries nationwide on the Wreaths Across America 2022 National Remembrance Day, December 17 at 10 am Tucson time. Anyone, of any age, is welcome to help place the wreaths. This is a meaningful opportunity to teach children to remember and honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans. Local Tucson participating cemeteries are Evergreen, East Lawn, South Lawn, Holy Hope, and the State Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Marana. Each hand-crafted balsam wreath is still $15.00, and your purchase helps to fund veterans’ assistance and Honor and Remember programs. Orders may be placed online at www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/AZ0011P or by mailing the order form with a check payable to Wreaths Across America to either the address on the form or to ALA Oro Valley Unit 132 at PO Box 69246, Oro Valley, AZ 85737. Forms may be obtained on the Unit’s website at www.ovunit132.info. You may also scan the QR code below.
