Wreaths Across America Program

  • Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 with the goal of honoring and remembering the sacrifices of American veterans by placing wreaths on their graves during the holiday season. The organization coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 2,500 participating locations across the United States, including at Arlington National Cemetery.
  • Each year, the organization conducts a wreath-laying ceremony on the second Saturday in December at Arlington National Cemetery, where volunteers place wreaths on the graves of fallen service members. The event is conducted simultaneously at over 2,500 other participating locations throughout the country, including at military cemeteries, memorials, and monuments.
  • Wreaths Across America's mission is "Remember, Honor, Teach," which is meant to encourage people to remember and appreciate the service and sacrifices of American veterans, honor their lives and work, and teach future generations about the importance of patriotism and civic responsibility.
  • The wreaths are sponsored by individuals, corporations, and other organizations, and the proceeds go to support the mission of the organization. Wreaths Across America also works to support the families of fallen veterans, provide educational resources and programs, and advocate for issues related to veterans' rights and benefits.
  • In addition to the annual wreath-laying ceremony, Wreaths Across America hosts various events throughout the year to promote its mission, including community outreach programs, educational initiatives, and fundraising activities. The organization is run largely by volunteers, and relies on the support of the community to continue its work of honoring and remembering America's veterans.
  • The Jeremiah Clark Chapter has a wreath sponsorship program every year. Members from the chapter attend the annual ceremony and participate in the placement of the wreaths.
