Welcome to the Fort Jackson National Cemetery’s Wreaths Across America Web Page.

On December 14, 2024 (Wreath Placement Immediately Following Ceremony), at 12:00pm, we will be having our 15th annual Fort Jackson National Cemetery Wreaths Across America Ceremony. Please help us by sponsoring a wreath and join us to Remember and Honor our Veterans by placing Memorial Wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and saying their name aloud. You may not know this, but… A Veteran Dies Twice… First when they draw their last breath… and Again, when their name is spoken for the last time. Please come and help us keep their spirit alive. You do not have to volunteer to attend the ceremony or place wreaths. Everyone is  welcome and will have the opportunity to place wreaths! 

If you would like to volunteer to help work with the setup the morning of the ceremony or other areas we will be needing assistance, please email us at Volunteers.waaft.jackson@gmail.com and we will send you the information on the areas you can help. For all other inquires, email us at waaftjackson@gmail.com
