Every veteran buried in Oakville Cemetery had a wreath laid on their grave in coordination with Wreaths Across America on December 15, 2018. On that same day, the Oakville Historical Texas Cemetery Medallion awarded by the Texas Historical Commission in conjunction with the Live Oak County Historical Commission was unveiled next to the Texas Historical Marker for Oakville Cemetery placed there in 1968.
