Welcome to the Raleigh National Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 14, 2024 at 12:00 pm (Wreath Placement Immediately Following Ceremony), Wreaths Across America will be at Raleigh National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath laying ceremony, please click the “Volunteer” button next to the cemetery name below, and don't forget to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you. 

We will begin unloading wreaths at 11am, pause for the ceremony at noon, and lay the wreaths immediately following the ceremony

Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. Use Raleigh National Cemetery, Rock Quarry Road, Raleigh, NC 27610.  When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself.  Entrance to the ceremony is off Rock Quarry Road and normally will have a semi truck at the entrance.

Parking Instructions

There is plenty of parking near the cemetery and the elementary school across the street, so feel free to park in any available spot. Please do not park inside the cemetery circle as this inhibits the Wreath Delivery Convoy.  Also, if you're in a motorcycle group please allow enough room for the wreath delivery truck to back in and to pull back out once wreath unloading is complete.
