Wreaths Across America dates back to 1992. Very simply, it is a solemn process of placing a wreath on every US Veteran's grave at every US Veterans' Cemetery.
Bakersfield National Cemetery, one of the newer in the country, was among those adorned by wreaths on December 12, 2009, the first year that the cemetery was open. Thanks to the donations from a very generous community, we have been able to place a wreath on each gravesite for five year, every years since the cemetery opened.
Words cannot express the honor and humility that this project brings to all who participate.
For this project to continue, we are expanding our efforts to raise funds by contacting a number of community-conscious companies and service organizations in this area. We publicly thank them here for their 2015 contributions:
