Directions to Cemetery

Jefferson Barracks has limited onsite, off street parking.  Please carpool as much as possible and consider parking in the remote lots off Sheridan Road, or outside the back cemetery gate by the school.  Please follow the directions of the volunteers who will be controlling traffic.  Use the main entrance or the back entrances; the employee entrance off Sheridan is reserved to move group volunteers who are preregistered with access passes into the group pickup area.  

Parking Instructions

Due to the anticipated large crowds we suggest carpooling as much as possible and being prepared to arrive early for the 11 a.m. ceremony.  

Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get all updates about the cemetery itself.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.
  • Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath by taking one or two wreaths at a time, placing them, pausing to Say Their Name with honor & respect.  This is not a race, it's a mission to honor.  
  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths in the predetermined sections we will be covering, as well as "how" they should be placed.
  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. 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 and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
