CSP-Solano veteran inmates help with wreath effort to honor nation’s fallen veterans

On a recent frosty December morning, thousands of people ranging from young to seasoned with life’s experience gathered to celebrate, honor and remember our veterans who have been laid to rest at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon. CSP-Solano inmate veterans donated funds to help with the effort to purchase wreaths. The wreath laying is a tradition started by a business owner who had visited Arlington National Cemetery as a young boy. The visit made a lasting impact on his life so in 1992 he felt compelled to donate 5,000 surplus wreaths from his business to the cemetery for placement at the graves of our fallen heroes.

While still many challenges remain, the staff of this Department has stepped up in very many ways. I’m so appreciative of all the hard work and dedication that you all display every day.
