Directions to Cemetery

Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself.

Parking Instructions

Once you arrive at the cemetery please follow the directions of the cemetery staff for parking. Please be patient, and safe as there is a lot of walking traffic and children. 

Ceremony and Volunteer Information

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

Here are some things to remember about the ceremony:

  • Everyone of all ages and backgrounds is welcome.

  • We ask that you arrive early, preferably between 9:00a, and 9:30am due to the number of people that attend this event and parking limitations. 

  • Please wear comfortable shoes, since there is a lot of walking. 

  • Please be respectful of those who may have mobility issues, if you can walk to the farther headstones please do so, so those who can not walk that far may place a wreath closer to the wreath hand out stations.

  • Ceremonies around the world will be starting at the same moment, so please be on time.

  • Wreath Placing will begin approx. 10:30am, and the ceremony will begin approx 11:45am. 

  • Please help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath by getting and placing one wreath at a time.

  • Please follow the location coordinators instructions on where to place wreaths, as well as "how" they should be placed.
  • We especially appreciate volunteers willing to help clean-up. Please check in with the location coordinator if you are interested in helping with the clean-up.

The most important thing to remember is to have a wonderful experience participating in the ceremony and thank you so much for help Wreaths achieve our mission to remember, honor and teach.
