Holiday Wreath-Laying to Honor Veterans at Fort Gibson National Cemetery

December 3, 2018

Fort Gibson National Cemetery is currently being decorated with 21,000 artificial wreaths by members of Wreaths for Fallen Heroes. The public is invited to attend a Wreath-Laying Ceremony on Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. Wreaths for Fallen Heroes is a local non-profit organization that raises funds to purchase artificial wreaths for gravesites at the National Cemetery. 

The cemetery is also hosting Wreaths Across America, which will place 1,000 natural wreaths on gravesites on Dec. 15 at 11 a.m. and the public is invited to that ceremony as well. 

Wreaths Across America is committed to recognizing Veterans, active duty military and their families. Their goal is to remind the public to remember the Veterans, honor their service, and teach children the value of freedom. 

The National Cemetery is located at 1423 Cemetery Road in Fort Gibson. For more information, please contact Bill Rhoades, Director, Fort Gibson National Cemetery, at 918-478-2334.
