Join Wreathes Across America on National Wreaths Across America Day
December 16, 2017
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.
It is encourage that every volunteer who places a wreath on a veteran's grave to say that veteran's name aloud and take a moment to thank them for their service to our country. It's a small act that goes a long way toward keeping the memory of our veterans alive. #SayTheirNames
In the words of WAA Executive Director, Karen Worcester, "We are not here to “decorate graves." We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives."
