The following questions provide a brief overview of the importance and meaning of Maryann Cullin's invitation:
What is Wreaths Across America Day?
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 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
What should I expect as a Volunteer on Wreaths Across America Day?
As a volunteer, you'll join tens of thousands of others across the nation in placing wreaths on the markers of fallen heroes. Volunteers then "say their name" to ensure that the legacy of duty, service, and sacrifice of each veteran is never forgotten. There is no age limit to volunteer and, in fact, we encourage families to come and share in this patriotic experience!
