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

Welcome to the US Air Force Academy Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 14, 2024 at 10:00 am (Wreath Placement Immediately Following Ceremony), Wreaths Across America will be at US Air Force Academy Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

With your support, we have been able to place a wreath for every veteran for the past 6 years - please help us continue that legacy and make this the 7th year that we ensure every veteran is honored and remembered with a wreath.

In the event all veteran graves are covered at our cemetery, the overage will be used to assist the Pikes Peak National Cemetery and the Memorial Gardens Cemetery to remember and honor their Colorado veterans.

Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to volunteer to participate in the wreath-laying ceremony, please click the “Volunteer” button next to the cemetery name below, and don't forget to click the "Invite" button to invite your friends and family to join you.
