Wreaths Across America ~ Honoring our Fallen Veterans & How You Can Help

21 November 2015 by

Wreaths Across America


Remember, Honor, Teach, is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. We also organize a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia where we stop along the way to spread our message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.

Ways to Sponsor

Wreaths Across America needs your help to reach our goal of placing 750,000 wreaths on veterans graves in 2015. Every time you help us honor our veterans and active military, you are also honoring their families and preparing a new generation to appreciate our freedoms.

Would you be willing to donate one day to help thank veterans in your area and raise funds for the Arlington Wreath Project? This year we have been given the tremendous challenge of covering all of the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. This feat will take many hearts and hands to accomplish.  Learn more.
