REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.  Due to Covid 19 the GDVS is changing our Wreaths Across America Program this year at our Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Milledgeville. There will be no public ceremony and small groups of volunteers may place wreath at our cemetery.  Wreath Placement will be on December 18th at 12:00 PM. Thank you so much for supporting Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery - Milledgeville and Wreaths Across America!

WHO WE REMEMBER

From the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts, our veterans are devoted sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers. They come from all backgrounds in life to place those lives on the line for our freedoms. There are millions of individual stories to tell. Get to know them by viewing the 4,760 recent posts made by our supporters or sponsor a wreath in honor of or in memory of an American hero.
