A person dies twice: once when they take their final breath, and later, the last time their name is spoken. We do not just "decorate graves." We remember not their deaths, but their lives.

Following the ceremony, the American Heritage Girls troop members lay wreaths on the veteran's grave, say their name, thank them for their service and tell them they will not be forgotten. The public is welcome to lay wreaths as well. It is a heartfelt ceremony and a wonderful way to honor our veterans.

The local wreath-laying ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. at the Fallbrook Masonic Cemetery, 1177 Santa Margarita Drive. The public is invited to attend the ceremony. Individuals that are interested in sponsoring a wreath to be laid this year, please visit: Wreaths Across Americato donate wreaths. Wreaths can be designated for other cemeteries or memorial wreaths can be designated for specific service men and women.
