REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Tri-Cities Military Affairs Council (TN0010P)'s Wreaths Across America Page. ** Both Wreaths Across America and Mountain Home National Cemetery are unable to accept grave-specific requests directly. If you wish to sponsor a wreath for a specific Veteran buried at Mountain Home, please contact the TCMAC fundraising coordinator…firstname.lastname@example.org or (423) 213-6805. If you do make a grave-specific request, please be sure to provide us with all applicable details, such as section and site number, if you know them. Our volunteers will do their very best to honor your wishes.
On Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 12:00 PM, Tri-Cities Military Affairs Council (TN0010P) will be helping Mountain Home National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. The Mountain Home Ceremony begins at 12:00Noon, with the wreath placement afterward...about 12:40PM. Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so PLEASE BE ON TIME.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
Thank you for supporting the Tri-Cities Military Affairs Council (TN0010P) and Wreaths Across America! Please note: Under no circumstances, should individuals sit on headstones or interact in a way that is anything other than respectful to those buried in the national cemetery.
