REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the George Washington Chapter SAR (WV0005)'s Wreaths Across America Page.
On National Wreaths Across America Day, George Washington Chapter SAR (WV0005) will be helping National Cemetery of the Alleghenies to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
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.
For every two wreaths that you sponsor through our group, Wreaths Across America will provide a third wreath at no charge.
Thank you so much for supporting the George Washington Chapter SAR (WV0005) and Wreaths Across America!
