During the holiday rush of downtown Hinesville, the wreath laid under the Eternal Flame in Victory Park on Dec. 18 will remind the community to take time to remember the ultimate sacrifice made by Fort Stewart soldiers.
After laying 373 wreaths at the Warriors Walk trees on Dec. 15, the Wreaths for Warriors Walk Committee decided to extend the holiday wreath laying to Fort Stewart’s neighboring cities of Hinesville, Glennville, Pembroke and Richmond Hill.
“The goal was to place a Christmas wreath at every tree at Warriors Walk for the holidays,” Bruce Muncher, Wreaths for Warriors Walk Committee chair, said.
And the committee was “very successful” at meeting the goal, according to Muncher, with enough contributions to jump start for next year.
He said he appreciated the “number of volunteers that's come forward.”
The Wreaths for Warriors Walk Committee includes Bruce Muncher, chair; Tony Justi, co-chair; Susan Ammons, secretary; and Marianne Rogers.
