Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our National Wreaths Across America Day ceremony at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. Please do not forget to register to volunteer! That way you will get updates about the cemetery.

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Please help ensure that ALL participants get the opportunity to place a wreath. There is a LIMITED number of wreaths for the large number of people who want to participate. We are NOT here to just place wreaths at head stones. We are honoring the fallen. 
  • At the grave site, take the white tag from the back of the wreath. Write the name of the veteran onto the tag and then take the white tag home with you.
  • Place the wreath (red ribbon positioned on top) in front of the head stone, stand up and SALUTE, SAY the name of the veteran out loud and THANK that veteran for their service.  
  • We especially appreciate volunteers' willingness to help clean-up wreaths on January 20th at 8:00AM. Check in with the location coordinator or just show up at 8:00 AM.

The most important thing to remember is to have a positive attitude and a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony. Thank you so much for helping Wreaths Across America achieve our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.
