Welcome to the Morrissett Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 18, 2021 at noon the staff, family and friends of Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service will be assisting others at the Virginia Veterans Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance Wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.  Our goal is to help procure and place a wreath on every interred hero's final resting place.  

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.

Thank you so much for supporting Wreaths Across America!
