About 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 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. For many years, the continued generosity of the trucking industry has enabled Wreaths Across America to distribute veterans’ wreaths to their final destinations. In 2022, 2.7 million wreaths were delivered by more than 300 companies to over 3,700 participating locations across the continental United States and abroad!
