In December, the citizens of the Greater Fort Smith Region in partnership with Wreaths Across America will transform the Fort Smith National Cemetery into a beautiful scene to honor the service men and women of this community who made the ultimate sacrifice by placing wreaths on each of the 14,000+ headstones. We invite you to participate in this year’s event!
