An energetic small city set in the idyllic countryside only 30 miles north of Nashville, Gallatin offers the rich variety of recreational, educational, and economic activities you’d expect to find in a bigger city. Recognized as one of the top “power suburbs” in the United States, Gallatin boasts high-paying jobs and low taxes. Economic health, a thriving arts scene, and a vibrant retail environment make Gallatin a hub for family life.
“This ceremony is something that connects us to our roots,” said Gallatin Mayor Paige Brown. “Placing a wreath on a veteran’s grave not only honors those individuals who served, but also teaches future generations about their sacrifices.”

It's back to its original bronze color, and after a months-long makeover, back to the department. And soon, it will have a much grander display with a new cover on a concrete pad surrounded by flagpoles.
