Introduction To Wreaths Across America:

Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. You can read the full history of the organization  here - feel free to use! Here’s a video version that will save you the reading:


National Wreaths Across America Day is a free, non-political event, that honors and remembers our nations veterans who are laid to rest in 2200 different locations nationwide. While this event is usually open to all people, this year each individual location will be abiding necessary safety guidelines and rules set forth by the participating cemetery locations, at which we are their guests.

People living in communities all over this country have demonstrated that Wreaths Across America Day is important to them as Americans and loving family and friends. Right now Volunteers are working hard trying to raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and changing with the needs of their areas to keep this tradition going despite the challenges 2020 has to offer.

May 2021 Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 Monument Unveiling

Join us in officially unveiling the new Flying Tiger Line Flight 729 memorial, constructed in honor of its namesake flight, which went missing on March 16, 1962. When the plane disappeared without a trace, so did 93 U.S. Army soldiers and their flight crew. All were declared missing in action and presumed dead.
It has been nearly sixty years and for the victims' families, questions and heartbreak still remain. We will be joined by surviving family members and friends of the lost souls aboard that plane to remember and honor their service forever.
-------
Last July, the ground was broken for the newest memorial to be located on the Wreaths Across America tip land amongst the balsam fir trees adorned with replica dog tags which represent thousands of fallen veterans. We will be livestreaming the in-person unveiling ceremony to our Facebook page so supporters can watch from all corners of the country!
