The 17th Annual Natio0nal Wreath Project

Gettysburg, PA.

8:00 AM Wreath & Bow Assembly, Giant Food parking lot
Natural Springs Road, Gettysburg, PA
The Soldiers National Cemetery Wreath Placement ha been discontinued.
Last year, Steven Sims, Superintendent Of Gettysburg National Military Park and the
Eisenhower Historic Site broke from a multi year and multi superintendent tradition. Rather than
issuing a permit for the event that began in Gettysburg in 2008 and was attended by numerous superintendents, Mr. Sims (in my opinion) intentionally delayed the process in an attempt to run out the
clock.
It was only with the 11th hour intervention by Congressman John Joyce that we were allowed to proceed with the 13 year tradition at Soldiers National Cemetery.
We are therefore following the path of least resistance and concentrating our efforts at
Quantico National Cemetery in Triangle, VA. Every cemetery director since 2007 has not only welcomed the event but has taken an active part in the event. In addition the cemetery has provided
a stage, public address system as well as cemetery personnel for traffic control.
