Our annual tradition of Remembering, Honoring & Teaching with the wreath placement at Quantico National Cemetery will be organized similar to last year. Based off the amount of wreaths that will be sponsored for Quantico National Cemetery, there will be three blocked period of times throughout the day on December 18th for those who would like to participate. If you are planning to participate for this event, we ask that you register at the following website:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wreaths-across-america-quantico-national-cemetery-18-dec-2021-tickets-176396445517.  By completing your registration, this will assist our local coordinators with controlling the flow of traffic into the cemetery and assuring the safety of all of our volunteers....
