Wreaths Across America's Inaugural Living History Tribute
Wreaths Across America’s mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach. The goal of the Living History Project is to teach visitors about the sacrifice of men and women who have fought so hard for our freedoms.
We are seeking up to 200 volunteers willing to dress in period attire from 7:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 17, 2016. You will need to provide your own authentic attire and will be assigned to a particular location within or around Arlington National Cemetery. While “on-duty” you will greet the volunteers distributing wreaths and visitors with a silent acknowledgment (salute, nod, bow or curtsy). If engaged by visitors you’ll be free to explain your portrayal and encouraged to discuss the details of the Living History Project. ***(Security requirements strictly prohibit the use of any weapons (actual, imitation, replica, handmade, 3D, etc. ) or flags as part of your period attire or exhibit)***
Your contribution will immeasurably enhance a memorable event for all who attend.
