2017 Wreaths Across the Grove

Dec. 9, 2017

Volunteers attended this year's Wreaths Across the Grove and posted the wreaths at all the obelisks as well as the Chaplains, AOH, Lincoln Statue, Gold Star Families, Gatehouse, POW/MIA and the Circle of Trees. Afterward everyone enjoyed lunch in the dining hall. The snowfall was a bonus. Thank you!

Marine Circle of Trees

This memorial is a circle of thirteen flowering crab apple trees, one for each marine, who died in a training exercise in Vietnam on March 28, 1967. Family and friends joined in laying a wreath at each tree in memory of these young marines.
