Wreaths Across America
Event Start Date: 12/15/2018 7:15 AM
Wreaths Across America
Time: 7:15-11:00 AM
Address: Memorial Drive Fort Myer, VA 22211

Join us in placing Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of heroes buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

We will meet at the Greenbelt Metro Station at 7:15 AM on Saturday, December 15, 2018, to arrive at Arlington National Cemetery at 8:30. Departure time is up to you as they lay wreaths until 3 PM. Kim will be leaving the cemetery at 11 for any who want to join her. If you carpool please make sure all your passengers are with you before you leave the cemetery.

There is a ceremony we may see the tail end of that goes from 8:30-9 AM. This ceremony is not required to lay wreaths. After the ceremony, volunteers will move to the trucks located throughout the cemetery where they will participate in the laying of wreaths on headstones beginning at 9:00 AM. We want to remind you that when you place the wreath, you may be the first person to visit that particular grave in years, so we hope you will take time to read the stone and honor the memory of that hero.

If you want to lay a wreath on a specific person’s gravesite, please do your research ahead of time as the cemetery is vast. The easiest way to locate your loved one is to either download the ANC Explorer App on your phone and fill in the blanks for “Find a Gravesite”. You can also find the gravesite via this link.

If you can’t attend but still want to support our fallen heroes you can sponsor a wreath from the website here. Just click on the red “Sponsor Wreaths” button for various options.

Contact Kim to let her know that you are planning to participate: shires.kim@gmail.com. She will send an email Friday night before the event to firm up meeting plans
