Fort Indiantown Gap cemetery, Fort Indiantown Gap, PA, USA

About The Event

The Ceremony begins at 12:00 Noon, lasting about an hour, then place wreaths on the graves afterward.  Parking (free) is offsite and shuttle buses will make loops all day taking us to and from the cemetery.  Arrive early to allow plenty of time to be transported.  Wear comfortable boots, you will get muddy, and bundle up as it is held rain, snow or shine.  You pick up one wreath, go to the next headstone, say the Veteran’s name out loud, say a prayer if you wish, thank him/her for their service, place the wreath, fixing the bow as needed, then return to get another wreath.  Amazingly, all 44,500 wreaths will be placed within just a couple hours with the help of all the volunteers.  Please join us!

More shuttle parking information will be sent via email to the CVCC Google group.
