Statehouse Ceremonies

Each year Wreaths Across America conducts a wreath-laying ceremony on the Monday before National Wreaths Across America Day, at statehouses all across the country. These events are non-partisan, all-inclusive events that engage our leaders at the local, state, and federal level, with a reminder about one thing we can all agree about - appreciation for veterans.

The Wreaths Across America mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach about the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families. Not everyone can attend the wreath-laying events on the Saturday of Wreath Day, so we invite others to join us at the steps of government, to mark the occasion of showing gratitude each holiday season, for those who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedoms.
