Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the direction of the staff for parking and cemetery section selection. 

There will be ongoing committal services being provided simultaneously to our wreath laying. Please remember that we are all guests of the cemetery, and be very mindful of the bereaved families that will be encountered.

Parking Instructions

Because of the limited number of participants this year and regulated time allocations, all will be welcome to park on the cemetery grounds. 

Please make sure you are courteous and patient when entering, as families laying their loved ones to rest will have priority entrance.

Your entrance ticket must be on your vehicle dashboard, and the Miramar staff will direct you to the assigned parking area.

Remember that we are GUESTS of the cemetery, and sharing time and space with grieving families.

Ceremony and Volunteer Information

This year we find ourselves in unsettling times. We sincerely thank the National Cemetery Administration for their diligent work to insure "Wreath Day" is not interrupted. And since "Every Wreath is a Ceremony," all activities will be complete by Friday at 4:00 pm.

This year, we are asking anyone who does not have a loved one resting at Miramar National Cemetery to return to this site after Nov 1 and register as a volunteer.  The public will be invited at 3 different times over 2 days: Wednesday, Dec 16 at 1:00 pm, Thursday morning (Dec 17) at 9:00 and afternoon at 1:00.  A total of 100 people will be welcomed in each allocation, and you MUST have a (no cost) ticket to participate.

We are asking anyone who has a family member(s) resting to sponsor a grave specific wreath and mark that you will or will not be present to place the wreath by copy and pasting this link into your browser: https://tinyurl.com/yy4lkfro

Wreath laying for family only will be Wednesday, Dec 16 at 8:00 am. You will be sent the most up to date "instructions" for arrival time, parking and wreath laying. You MUST sponsor a grave specific wreath using the link above, and noting that you will be present in order to be admitted that morning and to receive your wreaths.

Please sponsor wreaths by copy and pasting this link into your browser   www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/CA0452 or via your desired group.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work diligently to make sure every resting veteran at Miramar National Cemetery is Remembered on Wreath Day 2020. Please continue to check back often for updates to this information.

 Here are some things to remember about the day:

  • Because we will be laying wreaths AS committal services are taking place, we ask for your reverence and respect for those bereaved families laying their loved ones to rest.

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.

  • REMEMBER THAT MIRAMAR NATIONAL CEMETERY IS SACRED GROUND. Please behave in a manner that HONORS our heroes and their families.

  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed. (Tilted against the headstone with red ribbon on top.)

  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.
