Ceremony and Volunteer Information

We are happy that you are willing to help with our Wreath Across America ceremony at Jefferson Barracks 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.
  • To help ensure that all participants get the opportunity to place a wreath, wreaths are distributed to registered participants.  Please keep in mind there are over 200,000 gravesites at JBNC and only a small percentage of them receive wreaths each year.  You may only get one wreath to place, or you may get several.  It all depends on the number of wreaths sponsored each year and how many volunteers register.  We depend on supporters to sponsor wreaths to help honor more heroes every year.  
  • 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 on January 22, 2022. 

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.
