The Alabama National Cemetery in Montevallo is comprised of 479 acres that will serve more than 225,000 eligible patriots during the next 50 years.
According to the SCALNC website, “The Alabama National Cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of our nations heroes and a lasting tribute to the military service and sacrifice of those willing to lay down their lives for our freedom. A visit to this hallowed ground is a moving reminder of the debt of gratitude that we owe, not only to those resting within, but to their families for their sacrifice.”
Each year, the SCALNC coordinates a ceremony to lay wreaths on each and every grave within the Alabama National Cemetery. Wreaths Across America has become the largest event of the year at the ALNC and is one of the most attended holiday season events in the area.
The 15th annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony is currently scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 16.
