Wreaths Across America's Trucking Tributes Presents Crowley

It goes beyond the fact that you’re delivering a wreath to be laid on a service member’s grave. You’re delivering so much more when you think of the families that will see that wreath, potentially for the first time, laid on their loved one’s grave. The opportunity to deliver that level of heart-felt thanks is why we do what we do.”...

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. 

Please check back for information on off site parking.

Parking Instructions

We are allowing only 100 vehicles per 45 minute segment from 9:30 - 1:15. Registration and tickets are required. Please print your confirmation and have it on the dash board for entrance onto the property at your scheduled time.

Once inside the gate, you will be directed to one of two locations for wreath pick up. This will be a drive through pick up, so we suggest you ready the trunk of your vehicle for wreaths.

Once you have picked up your wreaths, you will be directed to a particular section and instructed on the parking system. We appreciate your compliance with our cemetery staff. We have thought long and hard about how to best facilitate entrance and exit, and following directions is key to the fluidity. THANK YOU.

Once your vehicle's occupants have placed their wreaths, kindly exit the cemetery, again following the directions of the cemetery staff. 



Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you want to participate in Wreath Day 2021.

We have augmented our "typical" wreath day to comply with the National Cemetery Administrations covid guidelines. Thank you for understanding and cooperating. Here is the protocol of the day

  • Private family placement will be held on Saturday, December 18, 2021 at 8:00am. If you have sponsored a "grave specific wreath" and indicated you will be present to place it, you will be issued your ticket to do so after December 14, 2021.
  • All other volunteers must register to participate. This year, we are allowing 100 vehicles per 45 minute segments. There is no limit on the number of passengers per vehicle. Click the "volunteer" button on this page.
  • Print your registration confirmation and place it on your dashboard when ready to enter the cemetery property.
  • Upon entering, you will be directed by the cemetery staff to one of two locations to a "drive through" wreath pick up.  You can receive the wreaths how ever you like, we recommend allowing our staff volunteers to place them in your trunk. Your vehicle will receive a specific number of wreaths per person.
  • You will then be directed to a specific section of the cemetery to place your wreaths. Please follow the directions of the cemetery staff's parking instructions. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation.
  • Do remember that the first part of the mission of wreaths Across America is to REMEMBER our fallen. This is done by saying their names out loud. Please do so as each wreath is placed. 
  • We have not received enough wreath sponsorships to be able to cover each veteran's headstone. Please only place a wreath on the headstone of a veteran. You will know because their will be a rank designation and service branch engraved on the stone. Refrain from placing wreaths on spouse or other family members' stones. However, DO NOT move any wreath you think is placed incorrectly. Family members will have gone before you and laid it for their loved one.

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

  • We especially appreciate volunteers to come and pick up & recycle wreaths. Pick up day will be Saturday, January 8, 2022. Please send us a message to get information.
