Middletown, OH, December 13, 2016– On December 17th all across the nation, Wreaths Across America will be adorning the graves of fallen veterans. Next weekend, Woodside Cemetery in Middletown will be hosting their own Wreaths Across America ceremony. The ceremony will begin at 12:00 PM (EST) on Saturday. By placing Remembrance Wreaths and saying the name of each veteran a loud, Wreaths Across America pays tribute to our nation’s veterans. This year over 1,000 different ceremonies will be taking place.
“We are not here to ‘decorate graves.’ We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives.” Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America.
Team Fastrax™ will be honoring these heroes by skydiving their 2,000-square foot American Flag at the beginning of the ceremony. Team Fastrax™ has a long history with the United States Military and are honored to be a part of such an event. With many Team Fastrax™ team members being military veterans themselves, this is an event that hits close to home. The patriotic American Flag jump will be in remembrance of all veterans, past, present and future. After their performance Team Fastrax™ members will be participating in the Wreath Ceremony, placing wreaths on veterans graves.
Woodside Cemetery is located at 1401 Woodside Blvd, Middletown, OH 45044.
