On December 16, 2023 two chapter members, Tom Owens, Col., USAF, retired and Ann Hollis, Lt. Col., USAF, retired participated in the Wreaths Across America ceremony at the Arizona Veterans' Memorial Cemetery in Marana. The event was well attended and wreaths were placed on the graves of all those buried or inurned there. It was a special day for Lt. Col. Ann Hollis as she was able to lay a wreath on her father's grave.
