National Wreaths Across America Day ceremonies are scheduled to take place across the United States on 15 December 2018. Wreaths are placed at the grave sites of our fallen veterans to REMEMBER and HONOR their service to our nation.
This year, for the very first time, French authorities gave permission for wreaths to be placed at the headstones of all U.S. service members laid to rest at Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, France.
The Wreaths Across America association exists to …
THOSE WHO SERVE.
YOUR CHILDREN THE VALUE OF FREEDOM.
OUR FALLEN U.S. VETERANS.
