Wreaths Across America honors current and past veterans

Greenwich residents held the town’s seventh Wreaths Across America ceremony on Saturday, Dec.13, at noon at Tomac Cemetery in Old Greenwich, where 27 known Greenwich Revolutionary War and some Civil War patriots are buried.

The ceremony is a offshoot of the Arlington National Cemetery laying of the wreaths on veterans’ gravesites and at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Monument at noon on this date. This ceremony was being held simultaneously in several towns throughout our country.

Jason Bacon, a Greenwich High School senior, Connecticut president of the Children of the American Revolution (CAR) and honorary president of the local Mary Bush Society CAR, has been organizing and running this event for the past four years by himself, which has been an eight-year tradition in the Bacon family handed down from his older siblings. Every year the American Legion Post #29 veterans and fellow Mary Bush CAR students honor veterans who are serving the country or those who had served this country. Residents learned about the importance of serving in the call of duty, and the importance of  remembering U.S. veterans who have served and are serving to protect the country.
