Wreaths Across America Schedule


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 at more than 2,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.  

From the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts, our veterans are devoted sons and daughters, father and mothers, sisters and brothers. They come from all backgrounds in life to place those lives in the line for our freedoms. There are millions of individual stories to tell.
