Wreaths Across America seeks volunteers to place wreaths
The Bismarck Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is seeking volunteer veterans to place wreaths at the Mandan Veterans Cemetary.
The Bismarck Squadron Civil Air Patrol will facilitate this year’s Wreaths Across America event at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery on Dec. 18 starting at 11 a.m. The event will culminate with adorning all gravesites – over 7,700 - with a holiday wreath.
The event will occur simultaneously with over 2,500 other ceremonies at locations in the United States, at sea, and abroad; and will be highlighted by the placement of military service ceremonial wreaths by veterans of each respective service. CAP is currently seeking nominations from the community for veterans from each service to place these ceremonial wreaths as part of the WAA event program.
The ceremonial wreath presenters will be selected via a random drawing based on online nominations. Anyone can nominate a veteran to place a wreath on behalf of their service, as well as for those service members still listed as a Prisoner of War or Missing in Action. Nominations can be made by going to https://nd030.cap.gov/wreaths-across-america/nominate-a-veteran and selecting the link to nominate a veteran . Anyone in the community can nominate a veteran, and veterans can nominate themselves.
