Wreaths Across America

Since 1992, Wreaths Across America (WAA) has placed remembrance wreaths on the graves of military veterans and their loved ones at over 1,000 national cemeteries each December. WAA is a 501-c-3 nonprofit, which means that each $15 wreath sponsorship is tax-deductible. In 2014, WAA and thousands of donors and volunteers placed wreaths on over 700,000 military graves. Included in that figure was 226,525 wreaths for Arlington National Cemetery – for their 150th anniversary, 100% of graves there were honored—the first time ever!

The government doesn’t provide, nor place, these wreaths
to honor veterans and their loved ones…WAA volunteers do!

We are a volunteer support group for veterans, spouses and their loved ones at a military continuing care retirement community. Last year, our residents, families, team members and friends sponsored and placed over 420 WAA wreaths. This year, we are starting our fundraising efforts early in hopes of repeating the 100% wreath placements at Arlington. We also want to expand our help to other WAA-supported cemeteries, including West Point, the Naval Academy and others throughout the US, including DE, GA, NM, NY & TX.
