Wreaths Across America
Non-profit organization formed in 2007 as an extension of The Arlington Wreath Project, with over 100 participating locations in all 50 states, and 24 national veteran cemeteries on foreign soil. What began in 1992 with a trailer load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery (See: The Arlington Story - How the Arlington Wreath Project was born) has now become a national organization with over 1400 participating locations - all focused on the mission to Remember - Honor - and Teach. With 30,000 wreaths placed in 2007, the growth that WAA has seen has been attributed to the value of the mission-Remember the Fallen; Honor Those Who Serve; and Teach Our Children the Value of Freedom. This mission resonates in the patriotic hearts of our volunteers. In 2017, 1,565,000 wreaths were placed at over 1,400 locations by 2,000,000 volunteers.
