Our thanks to all who attended the Wreaths Across America event to lay wreaths on every grave in the Veterans Section of Riverside Cemetery in Alma, Michigan. We had a wonderful turnout to honor our fallen comrades. Volunteers adorned each grave with a wreath and read each soldier's name aloud to remember and honor the individual and their sacrifice for all of our freedoms. Once the wreaths were placed, VFW Post 1454's Honor Guard gave a "21 Gun Salute" followed by "Taps." All were invited back to the Post to warm up with soup, sandwiches & dessert provided and served by our Post Auxiliary.
VFW Post 1454 would like to thank the Morning Sun News for publishing "Wreaths Adorn 185 Veteran Graves in Alma" written by Lisa Yanick Litwiller. We thank you for attending and bringing attention to this worthwhile cause. Read the article in the Morning Sun News HERE.
