REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Santa Fe Composite Squadron's Wreaths Across America Page.
On December 14, 2019, Santa Fe Civil Air Patrol cadets and senior members will be helping Santa Fe National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Our ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 AM. I suggest you get there early to find parking and make your way to the rostrum. CAP Cadets will direct you to parking. Remember it may be cold and windy so dress warmly with gloves, hat and warm shoes.
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.
Thank you so much for supporting the Civil Air Patrol Santa Fe Composite Squadron Cadets and Wreaths Across America!
