Our Story

My Uncle, LTC Michael Fields, served in the US ​Army Air National Guard for 26 years. After his ​service, he was diagnosed with stage four cancer, ​which he battled for four years before he passed ​away on May 25th, 2022. When I found out there ​were no cemeteries in our immediate area ​participating in Wreaths Across America, I knew I ​wanted to do something about it, and thus Wreaths ​for Uncle was born.

Wreaths Across America is an organization that ​puts live balsam wreaths on veterans' graves at ​over 3,500 locations in the US and overseas. ​Selma Memorial Gardens is now one of those ​locations and is also where 700 veterans are laid ​to rest.

After a successful first event, we have decided to ​expand the reach of Wreaths for Uncle beyond just ​wreaths to serve the community while honoring the ​memory of Uncle Michael.
