Remembrance Wreaths Needed for Oklahoma’s National Cemeteries

Beverly Cantrell - November 9, 2021 7:35 am

Remembrance wreaths are needed for the gravestones of over 33,000 veterans buried at Fort Sill and Fort Gibson National Cemeteries.

Fifteen dollars provides a live, balsam fir wreath for a veteran’s grave. The wreaths can be purchased at oklahomahonor.com.

Every wreath is donated by Oklahoma residents as well as corporations, small businesses, and philanthropic organizations,” said David Bolser, CEO of Senior Veterans, Inc. “This is a heartwarming way to honor the lives of the men and women who have protected the country we all love, and, most importantly, to see that every gravestone receives a wreath for Christmas.”

Organizers said wreath donations can be made any time of the year, but the public is urged to make their donations on Veterans Day.

Wreaths are shipped to the cemeteries where volunteers place them on December 18, organizers said.
