Welcome to the Lewis & Clark Young Marines (WA0009P)'s Wreaths Across America Page where we REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our Young Marines the value of Freedom.
Lewis & Clark Young Marines is honored to host the annual Wreath Laying Ceremony at Evergreen Memorial Gardens on December 15, 2018 at 10am . It is our privilege to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Please help us meet our goal of 2000 wreaths so we can honor and remember all 2000 fallen heroes at Evergreen Memorial Gardens. Sponsoring wreaths is easy and all wreaths are delivered directly to the cemetery. Last year we walked away from nearly 1600 un-honored graves. It was heartbreaking. Please help us meet our goal of 2000 wreaths this year.
Thank you so much for supporting the Lewis & Clark Young Marines (WA0009P) and Wreaths Across America!
