Honoring the Lives of Veterans with Wreaths

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - On Saturday, December 13 Sussex County will be honoring the lives of veterans who are buried at Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Millsboro.

Last year, over 400 wreaths were laid at the cemetery. 

The Wreaths Across America ceremony will begin at the cemetery on December 13 at noon, after all the wreaths have been placed on the graves. The ceremony will include guest speakers, Military Honors, wreath presentations for all branches of the service and more. The public is invited to attend.
