REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to the Miramar National Cemetery 's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 17, 2022, Wreaths Across America will be at Miramar National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud. 

Ceremony Details: We invite you to join us virtually for a remembrance ceremony this year! Details about how to view the virtual ceremony will be shared on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/waaCAMRNC/

We are hopeful that we will be able to hold an in-person ceremony in 2023 and appreciate your patience this year as we improvise to accommodate for limited parking in the construction areas around the cemetery.

Wreath Laying Details: If you are interested in helping us lay all sponsored veteran wreaths on December 17th, please register for a time slot by clicking the red volunteer button on this page. 

Please note that each registration is for one VEHICLE. You may bring as many people as you'd like as long as they fit in your vehicle. Do not register each person, but instead register each vehicle. 

Youth Group Registrations: We are holding 10:00am specifically for our youth groups. Please do not register on this page. Instead, contact the volunteer Location Coordinator, Brenda Kaesler, with the name of your group and she will confirm your registration. Email: wreaths4miramar@gmail.com
