On December 17th members of the Florida Veterans Foundation participated in the Wreathes Across America event at the National Cemetery in Tallahassee.  What began in 1992 with a trailer load of wreathes, placed be volunteers and laid at the headstones of our fallen at Arlington National Cemetery, has now become a national non-profit with over 1100 participating locations nationwide – all focused on our mission to remember, honor and teach.  When wreathes are placed on  grave markers it is a testament to them that we care, and we remember.  There were about 300 veterans and residents who came to the Tallahassee National Cemetery to pay tribute to the 175 gravesites.  Additionally, at Oakland Cemetery in downtown Tallahassee, there were approximately 150 veterans graves that were honored with a wreath.
