HONOR AMERICA'S FALLEN HEROES AND LIVE UP TO THEIR LEGACY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON 

DONATE A WREATH FOR WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY 

 

December 17, 2022 is National Wreaths Across America Day... you can help ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each fallen veteran's gravesite on December 17th at Arlington National Cemetery and at over 3,000 military gravesites around the country, at sea and abroad. You can help by sponsoring a veteran's wreath at a cemetery near you, by volunteering or by donating to a local fundraising group. Each year, the Wreaths Across America organization lays millions of wreaths at military gravesites. 

 

Please consider making a donation to Wreaths Across America to honor those who paid the ultimate price throughout our history for the freedoms we enjoy to this day. The 2022 theme for Wreaths Across America is "Find A Way To Serve." Please think about playing your part and support this cause by volunteering and or donating.

Video: What Is Wreaths Across America

 

This amazing organization, had its start 30 years ago with a trailer-load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. In 2021, approximately 2.4 million veterans’ wreaths were placed by volunteers on headstones at 3,136 at participating cemeteries around the country in honor of the service and sacrifices made for our freedoms, with each name said out loud.

 

 

“A person dies twice: once when they take their final breath, and later, the last time their name is spoken.”

The mission of Wreaths Across America is to:

REMEMBER the fallen; 
HONOR those who serve; 
TEACH our children the value of freedom.

Hi Nina,

This is such a worthy cause.  I have contributed in the past and will this year.  When my son, a Marine Vet, worked at Riverside National Cemetery, he would help lay the wreaths.  I love having a fresh wreath and always ensure I get it from a worthwhile organization.
