Wreaths Across America

  • DFW National Cemetery

    2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, TX (map)

    32.717905 -96.946964

  • Allow time for parking and walking to the Assembly area.
  • Join with IAVA, and invite others, as we honor those buried at the DFW National Cemetery by placing wreaths on their headstones with Wreaths Across America.  As well as at Arlington National Cemetery, this is one of over 1,100 locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad at which commemorations are held.

    10:50: Ceremony begins at the Assembly Area 

    11:00: Moment of Silence  

    11:45: Walk to the area we have gone to in prior years - sections 21 and 77 - on Rio Grande Drive (see map).  (A group of young-at-heart volunteers over the last year will also be laying wreaths in that area.)  Along that roadway that leads to the Admin/Maint Complex may be the last parking area to fill up.

    12:00: Begin laying wreaths
    12:30: Afterwards - TBA

    I have attended the last two. Special memories in honoring those whose names are carved in stone, and in sharing that time with some of the greatest people in the world.
