Parking is available in the lots immediately outside of the cemetery gate. Due to safety concerns, vehicle access will be closed during the ceremony and wreath placement.
As usual, this is a rain, shine or snow event, so please dress for the weather.
We should always remember that for veterans throughout our history, Christmas has often been spent far from home and their loved ones. After we place the wreaths, we will all go home and be safe and warm. They could not.
Take your time. Please pause at each headstone and say that veteran’s name out loud and thank them for their service before moving on. It is not a race to see how quickly we can place the wreaths. If there are not enough sponsored wreaths to honor every veteran at Mountain Home, we hope you will still take time to stop at headstones that do not have a wreath to say the veteran’s name.
Be respectful. Not only to each other, but we are guests of the cemetery, so please abide by all cemetery policies and remember that you are walking on sacred, hallowed grounds.
