Wreaths Across America


Submitted by Dennis Kluge, New Melle VFW and Auxiliary 5651

The New Melle VFW and VFW Auxiliary are proud sponsors of Wreaths Across America at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, national cemeteries nationwide, and local cemeteries.


Their mission is to honor and remember as many heroes as possible by placing a remembrance wreath at each veteran's grave. This year, 45 volunteers placed over 450 wreaths. Wreaths Across America is made possible by the help of you, the families and friends of our heroes, Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery and cemeteries across the country.

Thank you so much for supporting the New Melle VFW and Auxiliary’s efforts to honor those who served our country. Please note that 100% of all donations received for Wreaths Across America go towards purchasing the wreaths. REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
