REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the West Milford Presbyterian Church Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page.
On Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 11:45 AM, Wreaths Across America will be at West Milford Presbyterian Church Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath laying ceremony, please click the “Volunteer” button next to the cemetery name below, and don't forget to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you.

Protecting the Health and Welfare of Our Nation
The health service has grown from the initial corps of just physicians to encompass eleven different health categories including, therapists, nurses, pharmacists, and dentists, to name a few. They are veterans under federal law entitled to all of the benefits, including being buried in a veteran’s cemetery....
Doing Good Twice: Midwest Honor Flight, Sioux Center, IA
Each sponsored wreath helps to ensure a veteran has a wreath on their grave in remembrance and dedication once they pass, but that extra $5 means a veteran’s t-shirt or meal on the Honor Flight is covered at no cost to them....
