KENS CARES: Honor America's veterans with a remembrance wreath

Wreaths Across America and KENS 5 want to raise enough money to place a wreath at every grave in Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.

SAN ANTONIO — On Saturday, December 18, 2021, Wreaths Across America – San Antonio will be at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery to remember and honor our veterans through the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.  

There are 167,000+ headstones at this national cemetery, and the goal is to raise enough money to lay a wreath on every grave and say the name of each veteran aloud.

A remembrance wreath is a symbol of our soldiers’ sacrifice, bravery and loyalty to our country. The cost to sponsor a remembrance wreath is $15. 

Join Wreaths Across America and KENS 5 by sponsoring a wreath. Visit the KENS 5 (TX0773) Wreaths Across America page by November 30: https://wreathsacrossamerica.org/pages/160770
