Welcome to the Los Gatos Memorial Park's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 18 at 12:00 pm, 2021, Wreaths Across America will be at Los Gatos Memorial Park to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

This year, the National Wreaths Across America Day ceremony for our location will be held virtually on Saturday, December 19th, 2020. We are making necessary modifications to our ceremony plans and laying of veteran wreaths to ensure the safety of all who attend and participate. Information about how our virtual ceremony can be viewed will be shared soon. All sponsored and grave specific wreaths in 2020 will be placed by a small core group of volunteers. If you have special requests, please contact our volunteer Location Coordinator at cindy@rapportengineering.com to make those arrangements.

Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. 

Thank you so much for supporting Los Gatos Memorial Park and Wreaths Across America!

A Tribute
by Robyn C.
Dear Lydia, I want to thank you for the opportunity to place a wreath in honor and memory of my father, Edward Joseph Hara. He did not enjoy his time in the air force - especially his time scrubbing floors with a toothbrush in Greenland! - but I'm so glad he served our nation, just like your mama did. He was the best man I've ever known. God took him to heaven when I was only 18. It's been a long time since I've been able to hug his neck! One day, when I go to heaven, I know I'll find him there again. And our life in heaven is eternal. This is a great comfort to me! We have so much to look forward to beyond our earthly pains. And in the meantime, God is SO GOOD to us here, I enjoy what He has us doing here immensely too. Do you know how much Jesus loves me? Ian knew my father for three years before He took him to heaven. What a GREAT kind treasure that is for my family. I know Jesus loves you just as much as He loves me. And I'm eternally grateful He chose to put YOUR family in OUR lives. Love, Your Godmother, Robyn
