    Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, there is a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.  Let’s come together and honor our veterans.  Participation is free and is open to all ages.

    Join FSYF at the  McClellan Gate located just off of Eisenhower Drive, on McClellan Drive, between Sections 33 and 12 on Saturday, December 16, 2017, at 9:30 AM for the Opening Ceremony. The public will be allowed entry to the cemetery at 8:00 AM. The ceremony will provide some introductory remarks and a short briefing to provide basic information to volunteers. It is not necessary to attend the opening ceremony to be able to place wreaths. If you would like, you can proceed to any truck in any section of the cemetery and await the 10:00 AM start.

    Laying the 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 10:00 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. Our theme for this year is to “#I'mAnAmericanYesIAm.”
