Ceremony and Volunteer Information

Welcome to our Wreath Across America Remembrance Ceremony at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

Here are some things to remember about the Remembrance Ceremony and Wreath Laying:

• Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.

• The Remembrance Ceremony will start promptly at 9:00AM and will last about 1 hour.

• Wreath Laying will follow the Ceremony; the wreaths will not be available for placement until after the ceremony has ended.

• Please sponsor wreaths prior to November 22, 2019; this helps to ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath.

• Please follow the instructions on where to place the wreaths as they will be staged in sections throughout the cemetery.

We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please volunteer through this website if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.

The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
