Welcome to the Wreaths Across America ISO-NSDAR sponsorship group Page. 

On December 14, 2024, Illinois State Organization NSDAR will be helping Remember and Honor our departed veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes. Wreaths can be sponsored for any National cemetery and any WAA approved cemetery across the country.  Together we can assure these men and women will not be forgotten.

Please help us honor and remember our fallen heroes; for every two wreaths sponsored a third wreath will be laid for free on December 14, 2024. We also encourage you to join Illinois Daughters in volunteering on Wreaths Remembrance Day, in placing wreaths.
