National Wreaths Across America Day each December, volunteers place wreaths on individual veterans’ graves in over 1,100 locations throughout the US., with ceremonies at sea, and at each of the national cemeteries on foreign soil.  Wreaths Across America started as a grass-roots effort to remember those willing to serve and sacrifice. But each year we see an increasing number of corporate and industry donors who step up to help us honor more veterans, at Arlington National Cemetery and in over 1,100 local communities nationwide. Recognizing the sacrifices made by our military families is good for business, and many of our corporate supporters also have made pledges to hire our veterans and keep America strong.
