Wreaths Across America - Official Page

This afternoon, Wreaths Across America was made aware of the decision by Arlington National Cemetery to no longer allow the placement of veterans’ wreaths on National Wreaths Across America Day this year, which is scheduled across the country at more than 2,400 other participating cemeteries for Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020.

As an organization, we are shocked by this unexpected turn of events. To say we are devastated, would be an understatement.

It has been a trying year for all, and we too, want all our volunteers, donors and their communities to remain safe! This is why over the last six months, the team at Wreaths has been working tirelessly with local, state and national officials to ensure that all of our outdoor wreath-placement events are done so safely, following local rules and mandates.

Like our U.S. Military, we will adjust and adapt, and work together towards fulfilling the mission which is to Remember, Honor and Teach. Our Gold Star Families have lost too much for us to just give up. Please stay tuned for more details about how you too can recommit to the mission and join us in remembering all those laid to rest at Arlington elsewhere in the country, in their honor.

#RememberHonorTeach

38 years ago today, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was dedicated on the mall in Washington, D.C. Thousands turned out for that ceremony in 1982, and nearly 3 million visit “The Wall” each year. There are more than 58,000 names inscribed on it to honor all the service members of the U.S. Armed Forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for during the war. Hundreds of thousands of Ohioans served in the conflict, 2,997 of them died in Vietnam, while another twenty thousand suffered wounds. Bealsville, Ohio, lost more people per capita in the Vietnam War than any other community in the United States. Learn more about The Wall at www.vvmf.org #VietnamMemorial #Gratitude

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous calls from residents throughout the County inquiring whether or not we had information on impending riots and unrest in our communities, and what they needed to do to prepare for riots post-election.

Our Office, nor any other law enforcement agency in Lake County that I am aware of, has any concerns of unrest in Lake County communities. While all Lake Countians take very seriously the election process and have their particular political views on candidates and outcomes, Lake County has always accepted the results of our elections and found a way to work together not as Democrats and Republicans, but as Lake Countians.

The freedoms guaranteed to us by our forefathers and the Constitution of the United States guarantee the right to a free election. And as United States citizens it is our duty to accept the results of any free election even if our particular candidate does not win. It is how we have always operated as a nation and I firmly believe we will always operate moving into the future with the help of God.

I believe in the United States Constitution and all that our founders and so many others throughout history have fought and died for. Freedom does not come easily nor is it easy to retain.

Certainly, if any concerns for our community safety arise, we will get that information to you, and your exceptional law enforcement officers in all Lake County communities will respond accordingly.

God bless, and God bless our great Nation, State, and our Lake County.

37 years ago today, at 6:22 in the morning, a truck carrying 2,000 pounds of explosives drove into the Marine compound in Beirut and crashed into the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regimental Battalion Landing Team barracks. 241 US service personnel, including 220 Marines and 21 other service personnel, were killed. It was the deadliest attack against US Marines since the battle over Iwo Jima in 1945. The bombing was traced to Hezbollah, a militant and political group that originated in Lebanon in 1982. #NeverForget #1983BeirutBombing

Call us first and let us help! We are often able to get discharges (DD 214s) from other sources.

The National Records Personal Center (NPRC) is operating on limited personal due to COVID-19 and it is taking much longer than usual to receive your records or discharge documents.

There are many websites or companies online claiming they can get your records or discharge faster for a fee.

It is a SCAM!

They cannot get your records any faster than if we order them or you simply due it yourself.

The only time you will have to pay NPRC is if the record is 60 years or older and it is for genealogical purposes. If it is for a state or federal benefit it is free.

DON'T BE SCAMMED!
