National Wreaths Across America Day is a movement
to cover all Veteran grave markers with a Christmas wreath.
Congress designated the annual observance
on a Saturday in December.
Each year, In collaboration with Wreaths Across America, we will decorate the graves
of the 45 veterans who lie in rest in our historic 1696 Burial Ground.
Remember. Honor. Teach. This is the mission of Wreaths Across America.
By coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery
and other cemeteries around the country,
Wreaths Across America strives to remember our fallen heroes.
The day honors those who serve still today.
And it teaches our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families
to preserve our freedoms.
