REMEMBER the fallen… HONOR those who serve… TEACH our children the value of freedom.

Welcome to the Arlington National Cemetery Wreath’s Across America location page.

On Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 8:30 AM, volunteers will lay 253,000 veterans’ wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery just outside our nation’s Capital. These wreaths symbolize a commitment to Remember and Honor our nation’s veterans through the laying of wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each veteran aloud.

 

As one of the largest national cemeteries in the United States, our goal of covering every veteran’s grave with a wreath is lofty and requires a team of dedicated volunteers.
