Wreaths Across America 2018


On Dec. 15, more than 500 volunteers including family and friends of the veterans buried there, placed 7,274 wreaths at the King, WI Veterans cemetery – one for every gravesite.
“Everybody said I was nuts and that this would never happen,” said Ray, District 8 Legion Riders president, a past two-term state ALR director and a member of Palmer-Ritchie-Thomas Post 153. “It’s so gratifying to see it done. To remember all these vets. It’s a dream come true.”
