There are over 200 veterans buried in Farragut cemeteries. These veterans will be recognized for the first time through the 2023 Wreaths Across America program and the public is invited to participate.
The Veterans Heritage Site Foundation facilitates the laying of wreaths in Knox County. Each wreath costs $17, and donors can specify that their gift goes toward wreaths in a particular community. To donate, visit www.veteransheritagesite.org/wreaths-across-america/vhsf-wreaths-across-america-order.
The goal of Wreaths Across America is to place a wreath on every veteran’s grave marker to remember the fallen, honor those who serve and teach the next generation the value of freedom.
