REMEMBER the Fallen - HONOR those who Serve - TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Boise Composite Squadron's Wreaths Across America Page.
Each December, the Boise squadron partners with the Idaho State Veteran's Cemetery to remember and honor our veterans. Our Cadet-led Honor Guard is an integral part of the opening ceremonies and all of our Cadets and Senior Members lay Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
You can 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 so much for supporting the Civil Air Patrol's Boise Composite Squadron and Wreaths Across America!

We are asking that you arrive in plenty of time for parking before ceremony starts. There is limited parking inside the cemetery so we ask if you would like to park inside the cemetery or designated parking in Dry Creek Cemetery to arrive around 9am. There is NO guarantee that there will be parking inside cemetery as we continue to grow and receive a great amount of support. There is parking at Optimist Park where you may car pull to cemetery or walk in.
Depending on weather we can open 2 large dirt fields. If it is too muddy you will not be permitted to park in these dirt fields.
We will have several volunteers helping with parking should someone have questions as they enter cemetery.
We ask for you patience as we continue to work through parking issues with our amazing community as we continue to grow!
