Second Annual Wreaths Across America at Greenwood Cemetery

December 16, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Served. . . TEACH our children History
On December 16 at 1:00pm AAHCC will be commemorating African American Veterans interred at Greenwood Cemetery in New Bern. Please help us honor and remember these fallen heroes by volunteering on Wreaths Day and inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
After a brief Ceremony at the entrance of Greenwood Cemetery, 810 Cypress St, we will Remember and Honor these, often forgotten, veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on their gravesites. While placing each wreath, the veteran’s name and branch of service will be called out. Some of those honored served in the U.S. Colored Troops during the Civil War and some were Montford Point Marines who served in World War II.
We hope to see many of you on Saturday, December 16th 1:00 pm.
