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

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

We are committed to ensuring the safety of our community and are not holding a Wreaths Across America ceremony as usual at our location this year, however we will be placing all sponsored wreaths. 

We have put together a Wreaths Across America plan for Barrancas that accommodates current base security requirements, VA COVID restrictions in the cemetery, and social distancing guidelines. Currently, we plan to have shifts of 100 volunteers each morning and afternoon of Thursday 12/17 through Sunday 12/20. This is the maximum allowed by the VA at one time: 50 on the new side and 50 on the old side. All volunteers must register in advance and will be assigned to duty at a specific location and time. On Thursday and Friday, only DoD ID holders can volunteer. On the weekend non-DoD Id holders will be permitted on base but must register as a volunteer so we can maintain an accurate and safe count in the cemetery. Some shifts may be canceled depending on the timing of wreath delivery. Fill out the Volunteer for Wreath Placement Form online at https://www.barrancaswreaths.com/volunteer-for-wreath-placement.html, and we will notify you if we can accommodate your request. 

Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button. Or, if you would like to more information on volunteering go to https://www.barrancaswreaths.com/volunteer.html.

Thank you so much for supporting Barrancas National Cemetery and Wreaths Across America!
