Welcome to the Bath National Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page

Our mission is to REMEMBER the Fallen, HONOR those who Serve, and TEACH our children the value of Freedom. This year's theme is "Serve & Succeed." 

On Saturday, December 16, 2023, at noon sharp, the Wreaths Across America ceremony to remember and honor our fallen heroes will be held at the Bath National Cemetery followed by laying remembrance wreaths on Veterans graves.

In 2022, more than 3,700 wreaths were placed on Veterans' graves in Bath. Please help us reach our goal of 6,000 wreaths by clicking the red "Sponsor Wreaths" button shown above. Or you can sponsor wreaths through one of the more than 30 support groups listed on the additional pages by clicking on the "Groups" button at the top left of this page. The deadline to sponsor wreaths for this year's event is Nov. 29th.  

The public is invited to participate in the laying of wreaths, which will begin at noon. The earliest arrival time that day is 11:30 am. Go to our Facebook page www.facebook.com/WAABathNYNationalCemetery/ for the latest updates. 

There is no need to sign up to volunteer to participate in the wreath-laying effort. You can click on the "Volunteer" button to sign up if you like. Please feel free to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you. 

Please note - there will be no placing of grave-specific wreaths. ALL sponsored wreaths are shipped directly to the location and are not sent to the individuals purchasing sponsorships. However, if you select the Patriot Pair option, this will allow you the opportunity to do so on your own accord.

Thank you so much for supporting Bath National Cemetery and Wreaths Across America!
