Nevada Veterans Coalition hosting Wreaths Across America Saturday

Once again, the Nevada Veterans Coalition will honor the veterans who gave a portion of their life for our country. On 9 a.m. tomorrow, Dec. 16, NVC will be placing wreaths on veteran’s graves at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Last year the goal of placing a wreath on every grave was reached with more than 6,000 wreaths placed. This year there are now over 8,000 veterans interred at the cemetery.

The living wreaths are delivered in ice by volunteer truckers, two days prior to the service. There are more than 750 locations, throughout the United States, that participate in this ceremony every year, simultaneously at 12 p.m. Eastern time.

The public is invited to attend the ceremony and help place these wreaths.
