This is a very important event that CAP takes part in each year to honor our fallen veterans by placing a Christmas wreath on many gravesites at veterans cemeteries across the country. Nationally, CAP considers this one of its signature events. There are TWO events this year that you can participate in.
-- Friday December 9 – One of the trucks carrying wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, DC is making a 90 minute stop at Middletown High School for a ceremony. If it is possible for you to take time out of school for this event, your show of support would be appreciated. I am not sure exactly what, if any, part we will play in the ceremony, but I'll let you know what I find out.
-- Saturday December 10 – This is the wreath laying event at the Delaware Veterans Cemetery in Bear. We will meet at the chamber of commerce at 11:00 and provide transportation. Uniform is BDUs. We need maximum participation on this. We will be attending the ceremony there and then actually laying wreaths on gravesites
