2023 Wreaths Across America, Santa Maria Cemetery
Our VVA Chapter 982 extends our deepest gratitude to everyone who participated in the Wreaths Across America event at Santa Maria Cemetery on Saturday, December 16, 2023, as well as those who helped with the identification of veterans graves on Friday morning with the small American flags. It was exhilarating to have so many in attendance. In addition to chapter members, there were several Space Force soldiers and Civil Air Patrol cadets there on both days. Members of Welcome Home Military Heroes and many community members were there as well to show respect for those who have gone before us. The USAF Color Guard presented the colors.
Hats off to Michael Knight for his captivating presentation; Jerry Kaufman for his excellent organization; and Debbie Ellington who sang the National
Anthem; and, Bill Nelson for the invocation.
