REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Civil Air Patrol Gastonia Squadron's Wreaths Across America Page.
On December 19, 2020, our squadron will be remembering and honoring the service of our veterans at Gaston Memorial Park in Gastonia 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 to help or attending the ceremony.
Thank you so much for supporting the Civil Air Patrol Gastonia Squadron's Wreaths Across America!
