To Honor Those That Served

In 2010, Wreaths Across America and volunteers laid over 220,000 memorial wreaths at 545 locations in the United States and overseas.  This is a 100% volunteer operation that was accomplished with the help from 902 groups, corporate contributions, donations of trucking and shipping, and thousands of helping hands.

Our local veterans' cemetery on Kennedy Boulevard has 730 gravesites.  Our goal is to place a wreath on every grave marker.  We need YOUR help to accomplish this goal.  The beauty of the red bowed wreaths is a sign that our community remembers those that have served our country.

We rely on generous donors like you to sponsor wreath(s) for our participating location.  Sponsorships are $15.00 for each wreath.  If you choose, you may honor an individual(s) through your sponsorship.  Any amount of donation is appreciated.

Please note that all sponsorships wreaths are sent directly to the location and no wreaths are sent to the individuals purchasing sponsorships.

Please send your donation for a wreath(s) to:

ALA Unit 5 (American Legion Auxiliary Unit 5)

Still Serving...

REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

On December 19, 2020 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Wreaths Across America will be at the American Legion Veterans Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

This year due to COVID19 we are unable to have the usual ceremony as in years past. However, we will have a recorded program and it will be played throughout the cemetery. Participants will be able to place wreaths on Veterans graves. To maintain social distancing, we will be handing everyone wreaths under a tent in the cemetery. Once you have your wreaths you can walk in the cemetery to honor a fallen veteran and to “Say Their Name”.  

Anyone wanting to place wreaths can come to the tent and will be provided a wreath. Wreaths will be handed out as guest arrive anytime between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 

Once you are finished placing your wreaths, we ask that you maintain social distancing while at the event.  

We are extremely happy that we are able to place wreaths this year. Please arrive between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 

Thank you so much for supporting the American Legion Veterans Cemetery and Wreaths Across America!
