  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
  • Join us for a brief ceremony at 09:00 am at the Upper Assembly Area; transportation will be provided.
  • At 9:45 am, volunteers may commence laying wreaths.  Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath.
  • Family and friends of veterans who sponsored 'grave-specific' wreaths will check in at the BNC's Public Information Center and will be the only participants allowed to lay a wreath between 7:30 am - 8:45 am.
  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Our wreath 'Clean-Up Day' is scheduled for Saturday, January 11th at 9:00 am.  Please check in with the location coordinator 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. Thank you so much for your help in achieving our mission to remember, honor and teach the next generation about what it means to serve and live with purpose.
