REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to Ferguson's Wreaths Across America Page. On December 12/14/15, 2024 (See location pages for ceremony and wreath placement details), Ferguson will be helping to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's military members.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you. You may donate to one of many locations by doing the following:

1. Select "Sponsor Wreaths."
2. Select "Location to Support." There is a drop-down menu on the right of "Hampton National Cemetery."
3. Scroll through the list to select your location of choice
4 . If a participating cemetery you would like to support is not listed, scroll to the bottom of the list and select "choose another cemetery to support." You will enter that cemetery name, and your donation will count towards our goal.  
Thank you so much for supporting Ferguson and Wreaths Across America!
