Welcome to Bethesda-Chevy Chase Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol's Wreaths Across America Page!
On December 17, 2022, our Squadron will join Civil Air Patrol members from across the country in helping to REMEMBER and HONOR our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. Our Squadron is once again committed to supporting the Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery.
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.
