Wreaths Across America Reach Wyoming Veterans

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

To remember, honor and teach. That’s the intention of the Wreaths Across America tradition that’s spread across the nation over the last 15 years. The tradition returned to central Wyoming at Oregon Trail Veterans Cemetery this past weekend. The idea, started at Arlington Cemetery, encourages the laying of Christmas wreaths on the gravesites of soldiers.

Jay Norby, for VFW Post 10969 in Mills, this year’s sponsor of the event locally, says the wreaths were laid last Friday and a service held Saturday. Norby says about 70 participants took part.

“We had Senator Barrasso and our very own, Specialist Colton Sassar was there. He laid our most cherished wreath, which is for prisoners of war and missing in action. And we had Chief of Police, Chris Walsh was there. So a very nice ceremony.”

Norby says there were 200 wreaths placed and they hope in coming years to raise additional donations to allow placement of one wreath for each grave site at Oregon Trail Veterans Cemetery in Evansville.
