Wreaths Across America works each year to ensure every headstone is covered and we need your help to honor all those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice. The majority of our donations come from the grassroots support of families and individuals, one wreath at a time. Each live balsam wreath is a gift of respect and appreciation, and placed on the graves by volunteers as a small gesture of gratitude.

This wreath laying ceremony occurs at veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. This day event is made possible by thousands of volunteers who organize local ceremonies, raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and participate in the events. The ceremony lasts approx. 45 min and the wreath laying is immediately following.

Let us respectfully pay tribute to the lasting sacrifice that protects our freedoms by placing a wreath on these veteran graves. It is a wonderful ceremony that liberates the reason for this coming season. Please come join us and many from our platoon members as we Honor our fallen. We are supporting the Old Guard Riders-Phoenix as they raise funds for Wreaths Across America.

One day we may actually be able to honor every burial marker with a wreath but until then we will continue our efforts to raise the funds for many of the prior-era veterans who are buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona (AZNMCP).
