Welcome to the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 18 (IN0136)'s Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 18 (IN0136) will be helping Rose Hill Cemetery and White Oak Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.

Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.

PLEASE NOTE: If you place a grave specific request, please follow up on your order with an email to the volunteer Location Coordinator Jenny at jtracy@ciswired.com to ensure those details were received and that the wreath is properly placed.

For every 2 wreaths sponsored through our group, Wreaths Across America will match a 3rd wreath for FREE, helping us honor even more veterans!

Thank you so much for supporting the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 18 (IN0136) and Wreaths Across America!
