RememberAVet Evening at Park Winters

Every December, holiday wreaths are placed on all the grave sites in honor of our Fallen at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery. This tradition began in 2006 when the cemetery opened and it is one of the few in the country to have 100% coverage each year. This December 23,000 wreaths will be needed in order to reach that goal. The cost of each wreath is $9.
