12-13-2014 Wreaths Across America

Today, we paid tribute to veterans buried at Sunnylane Cemetery by playing service songs for each Military Branch during the Wreaths Across America ceremony sponsored by the Catholic War Veterans of Oklahoma Memorial Post 168. Josiah and James played an awesome Echo Taps on their new bugles! After the ceremony we did some grave hunting, took us over an hour and a half to find the location of the 8 wreaths we were assigned to place, but we finally found them all.

Wreaths Across America™ (WAA), the national nonprofit best known for their annual wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and more than 905 locations nationwide – See more at: http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/about/mission-vision/
