The American Legion Post 5 Families wish to extend to you an invite to take part in one of the largest simultaneous events in the country.
Wreaths Across America Project
To Honor Those That Served
December 16, 2023

The American Legion Cemetery
3810 West Kennedy Blvd.
Tampa, Florida 33609
In 2022, Wreaths Across America and volunteers laid  memorial wreaths at more than 4,000 locations in the United States and overseas.  This is a 100% volunteer operation that was accomplished with the help from thousands of groups, corporate contributions, donations of trucking and shipping, and thousands of helping hands.

Our local veterans' cemetery on Kennedy Boulevard has 760 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 $17.00 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)
3810 West Kennedy Blvd.
Tampa, Florida  33609

Still Serving...

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

On December 16, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. Please allow time to arrive early to park and be seated prior to the ceremony starting.  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.

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

Join us by sponsoring a veterans’ wreath at a cemetery near you, volunteering or donating to a local sponsorship group.

Anyone wanting to place wreaths may come and will be provide a wreath while until all are placed. Wreaths will be placed after the ceremony. 

Once you have your wreaths you can walk in the cemetery to honor a fallen veteran and to “Say Their Name”.  

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