How to volunteer your time to lay wreaths:


We receive many calls daily wanting to know how to volunteer to lay wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery or at one of the hundreds of participating locations across the country.

To volunteer your time to place wreaths at Arlington please join us on a designated Saturday in December at 9:30 a.m. for a briefing to address the volunteers and instructions. After the briefing the volunteers are lined up behind the trucks and handed wreaths for placement. When you place the wreath please remember you may be the first person to visit this grave in years so take time to read the stone and honor the memory of that hero. The final ceremony will take place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at 12 noon.

Clean up volunteers are always needed too. Clean up at Arlington takes place in late January, for more information contact Mr. Wayne Hanson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at

To volunteer your time to place wreaths at one of the other participating locations please visit the list of locations on this site, the leaders contact information is posted with each location and they will be able to give you specific details about that individual locations ceremony and wreath placement.
