On December 16, 2023, at noon, Fayetteville City Cemetery will bear witness to a moment of remembrance and gratitude. Wreaths Across America (WAA), a non-profit devoted to honoring veterans, continues its mission of placing wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers. Wreaths Across America was founded with a mission to “Remember, Honor, and Teach,” a mission that we at Peachtree City-Falcon Field Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, support.
Located at 210-350 Stonewall Avenue West, Fayetteville, GA, the cemetery will host a ceremony that transcends mere tradition—it’s a collective act of gratitude. Everyone in our community and surrounding area is encouraged to participate in the wreath laying ceremony. As the clock strikes noon, a sense of purpose and reverence will fill the air, hopefully drawing together our community united in paying respects to those who sacrificed everything for our freedom.
The heart of the ceremony lies in the laying of wreaths on the final resting places of our heroes. This simple yet powerful gesture speaks volumes about the enduring impact of their sacrifice. Every attendee will have the chance to actively participate, ensuring that no grave is left untouched by the symbol of remembrance.
For those moved to contribute and be part of this meaningful tradition, online orders for wreaths are open until November 28th. This ensures sufficient time for WAA to honor every grave with the respect it deserves. To place an order and participate in this tribute, visit our official website, where you’ll find detailed information on the organization’s mission, the significance of the wreaths, and how you can actively support this cause.
Together, we will remember. Together, we will honor. Together, we will teach the generations to come about the sacrifices made for the freedoms we hold dear.
