Each year the Absecon NJ VFW conducts a wreath ceremony during the holidays. We understand we have Veterans Day in the fall, and Memorial Day in the spring. But our service men and women sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year, to preserve our freedoms. At many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving, or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. We honor our veterans every day. And we think there is no better time to express our apprecation, than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. On Saturday, December 13, 2014 at 10 am the VFW Post and the Ladies Auxiliary held the Wreaths Across America ceremony to honor our Veterans with speeches, prayers and the presentation of the wreaths as well a 21 gun salute. These ceremonies are held across all of America and beyond.
