REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to the Tahoma National Cemetery's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On December 18 at 12:00 pm, 2021, Wreaths Across America will be at Tahoma National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

This year, the National Wreaths Across America Day event for our location will be shared virtually on Saturday, December 19th, 2020. We are making necessary modifications to our event plans and laying of veteran wreaths to ensure the safety of all who attend and participate. Information about how to view our virtual event will be shared soon. 

All sponsored veteran wreaths in 2020 will be placed throughout the day on Wednesday, December 16th, Thursday, December 17th, and Friday, December 18th, by volunteers. To join us in laying veteran wreaths, please sign up for a specific time slot by clicking the red Volunteer button. You will then show your email confirmation as ticket for entry to the wreath laying event. Masks and gloves are required while on cemetery grounds, as well as social distancing. If you have special requests, please contact the Assistant Cemetery Director at jennifer.dehorty@va.gov to make those arrangements.

Please help our location lay wreaths at as many graves as possible by clicking the red "Sponsor" button.
