Menominee (Mich.) Sons of the American Legion Squadron 146 Participate in National Wreaths Across America Day

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission is to remember, honor and teach by carrying out the coordination of wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as more 2,500 locations in all 50 U.S. States, at sea and abroad.

Menominee Sons of The American Legion Squadron 146 understands that we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our servicemembers sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.
In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Michigan Sons will never forget.
