On the morning of Dec. 18, several members of the Catalina Mountains Satellite Chapter (CMSC) of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) joined hundreds of other veterans, their families, and various veterans service organizations in support of the Wreaths Across America (WAA) program and ceremony held at the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery at Marana, Ariz.
Across the country, there were 3,100 individual locations participating in WAA, with 3.1 million wreaths laid on Dec. 18. This was the sixth consecutive year that Arlington National Cemetery had 100% coverage of thousands of graves.
The goal of Wreaths Across America is to “Remember, Honor, and Teach” younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms.
The Military Officers Association of America is a non-profit veterans association dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and preserving the earned entitlements of members of the uniformed services and their families and survivors.
The Catalina Mountains Satellite Chapter is part of the Tucson chapter of MOAA and encompasses Northwest Tucson, including Catalina, Oracle, parts of Oro Valley and Marana, SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch, and Sun City.
