On December 14th we will Remember and Honor our fallen veterans by laying Veterans' wreaths on the graves of our country's heroes.  Please help us reach 100% coverage at Jacksonville National Cemetery again this year.  When you sponsor a wreath through this site, for every two wreaths sponsored, WAA National gives us an additional wreath.   Thank you for your support!

We invite you to join us on Wreaths Across America Day at Jacksonville National Cemetery.  All are welcome to come place a wreath.  You do not need to register if you are coming to place a wreath.  We'd love to have you join us!

If you would like to volunteer to help us make the day go smoothly, or plan to bring a group of volunteers larger than 20 people, please register as a Volunteer and we will be in touch with details about our event.   Many hands make light work!
