The public is invited to this event in the. – rain or shine – that will be hosted by Carmon Community Funeral Homes of Windsor and Windsor’s American Legion Gray-Dickenson Post #59.

“Our December 15th ceremony will feature a color guard, readings by members of local clergy and veterans, and welcomes from local dignitaries, to be followed by a three-gun salute and the ceremonial laying of wreaths by local Boy Scout Troop 149,” explains Matthew Carmon, a third-generation funeral director at family-owned Carmon Community Funeral Home. His grandfather was the firm’s founder, Frank W. Carmon Jr., who received three Purple Hearts and the Distinguished Service Cross, among other decorations, during World War II, and this annual project is a way of remembering him and the nation’s veterans. “We are very pleased to be able to again join Wreaths Across America to pay respect to the lives and service of our local veterans.”

Windsor’s annual Wreaths Across America ceremony program began nine years ago when the national organization reached out to the Hispanic-American Veterans of Connecticut, Inc. (HAVOCT). Carmon Community Funeral Homes, Windsor American Legion Post #59, and community groups, including local Boy Scouts of America troops, then joined them and the event in the Windsor Veterans Memorial Ceremony has grown larger every year since.
