Wreaths Across America will stream the wreath laying ceremony at Fort Bliss National Cemetery on Friday, December 18.  While the pandemic has limited the number of volunteers that will place these wreaths on at the cemetery, it is still comforting to know that this solemn tradition will still be happening in some capacity.

The ceremony will begin streaming at 10 a.m. on Friday, December 18 and can be accessed at facebook.com/wreathsinelpaso.

This will be the 28th year that Wreaths Across America is able to honor those who have served and are no longer with us.  Considering El Paso’s long military ties to Fort Bliss, the ceremony in particular holds a sacred place in the hearts of many here in town.

While volunteers are limited this year, it may still be possible to do so.  Those interested will need to sign up at wreathsacrossamerica.org/TXFBNF.
