O&R Volunteers Clean Up Holiday Wreaths from West Point Graves

O&R volunteers pitched in yesterday to help pick up the holiday wreaths they and others had laid last month at more than 7,000 graves in the cemetery at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

 

Through its Community Investment Committee (CIC), O&R fielded a volunteer team to help place the wreaths and donated $5,000 to the 10th annual Wreaths at West Point observance, a local project affiliated with the Wreaths Across America program.

 

West Point’s cemetery is one of nearly 1,600 veterans’ cemeteries across the nation that place wreaths, including 248,000 wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
