WreathsAcrossAmerica.org and Mount Bethel Cemetery Ceremony
A ceremony will be held at Mount Bethel Cemetery to honor the 680-plus veterans interned within these historic grounds. Veterans from the Revolutionary War and every U.S. conflict up to and including the Vietnam War will have a fresh balsam wreath placed at their headstone. A ceremony consisting of a Military Color Guard, 21 Gun Salute and Taps will begin at noon. Following the ceremony, a veteran representing the seven branches of service (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and P.O.W.) will present a wreath decorated with its respected flag. Volunteers will then place wreaths at the veterans grave along with saying their name to remember and honor their service.
