This year, we are laying wreaths for the second year at Veterans’ graves at Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, 7900 E Main St. in Mesa.

We sell wreaths for $15 each. Wreaths Across America will give us $5 back on every sale and we will use that money to help veterans in our community.

If you buy 100 wreaths, your name will be featured in our program. So far we have had Crescent Crown Distributing and Gambrinus and Hensley Beverage Co. Guild Mortgage Co. was our $5,000 sponsor for two years in a row. They will receive national recognition from Wreaths Across America.

At this time, we need to sell another 1000 wreaths so that every veteran has a wreath on his grave. The Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 2560 will coordinate with other organizations to sell and lay wreaths on all veteran graves in Mountain View Cemetery. Other affiliated organizations include VFW and VFW Auxiliary Post No. 7968; Head of East Valley ex-POW; SanTan Valley Veterans Center, and there will be more people willing to sell wreaths.

Anyone interested in sponsoring wreaths can purchase them directly from any of the organizations listed above or directly online at Department of Health chapter #2560 at wreathsacrossamerica.org/AZ0190P or contact Nancy Fassbender at 520-280-4715. to send a letter by mail. sponsorship.

For those who are online, it is important that you host the full website including /AZ0190P to get $5 back into our community.

Those who are interested in laying wreaths voluntarily will set a date of December 17, 2022. Please register by calling Nancy Fassbender.

In August, I was honored to travel to Columbia Falls to visit Wreaths Across America. Morrill Wooster founded this company to ensure that all veterans buried in cemeteries across the country are honored with a wreath-laying ceremony in December.

We visited a warehouse where wreaths are made. Would you believe they start 52 days before it’s time to ship wreaths across the country and they make 90,000 wreaths a day. That’s right, 90,000 wreaths a day. They hire locals to come and work. More than 600 semi-finished products are then loaded and the boxes are transported to the various cemeteries that participate. Right now they are sending 3400 cemeteries.

The most memorable event of the weekend was the Commemorative Token Placing. Each of us chose a few veterans we either knew or knew their families, and we went out into the evergreen field and attached their dog tags to a tree. We tied a red ribbon to the tree so that the workers knew that the tree had a token on it.

Then we said their names, hung tokens and honored them. When the wind blows through the trees, the tokens ring like bells and it’s such a nice sound.
