Wreaths Across America national commemoration planned Dec. 13

On Saturday, Dec. 13, wreath-laying ceremonies will be held concurrently across the United States as part of the annual Wreaths Across America commemoration.


The ceremonies will take place at noon Eastern Standard Time and 9 a.m. on the West Coast.


The Wreaths Across America story began over 15 years ago when Worcester Wreath Co. (a for-profit commercial business from Harrington, Maine) began a tradition of placing wreaths on the headstones of our nation's fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery during the holidays.


Over that period of time, Worcester Wreath has donated 90,000 wreaths which were placed by volunteers in a wreath-laying ceremony each December. But as word spread, the mission to Remember; Honor; and Teach about the sacrifices made by our veterans has captured the hearts and minds of many communities across the country.


In December 2007, 286 participating locations hosted Wreaths Across America ceremonies overseeing the placement of 32,553 wreaths on the headstones of those who served and sacrificed for our freedoms.
