Wreaths Across America's Trucking Tributes Presents Don Queeney
“It gave me a completely different opinion of the American public.I was surprised when I saw close to eighty thousand people find their way to Arlington National Cemetery, and you have to put effort into getting there, for the chance to get two, maybe four wreaths to place. It was inspiring."...

Directions to Cemetery
Calverton National Cemetery is located at 210 Princeton Blvd., Calverton, NY 11933. The Main Entrance is located on Middle Country Road (Route 25). Only those volunteers that are picking up “Grave Specific” orders should enter here and proceed to the Assembly Area (the circular road) to pick up those orders.
For ALL OTHER registered Volunteers Groups, the general Wreath Pick-up Location is directly across the street inside the Veterans Memorial Park. This is our staging area and volunteers are required to check in with Support Committee representatives there, take boxes of wreaths and proceed only to the sections inside the Cemetery that are designated for decoration this year. The starting time for wreaths to be picked up is 9:00 a.m.
Parking InstructionsThe speed limit inside the Cemetery is 20 MPH; please watch your speed! Vehicles should park on the closest side to the section that is being decorated with wreaths. Do not park on both sides of the roadway; it is way too narrow for two-way traffic. Calverton National Cemetery is the largest national cemetery in the country, comprising over 1045 acres. It is not advisable that you walk from section to section or from a section to the Assembly Area.
Ceremony and Volunteer Information
We sincerely appreciate your desire to help with our Wreaths Across America event at Calverton National Cemetery; however, members of the general public cannot be accommodated for the wreath laying activity at this time.
Due to the limited amount of wreaths that are sponsored and delivered to us, our long-standing Veteran groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout units, and other organizational groups are able to complete the wreath placement task in a short amount of time.
If you have a recognized organization and want to be involved in this, or any event at Calverton, please contact Frank Bailey at: email@example.com and request a participation form.
