In 2014, Wreaths Across America and its national network of volunteers laid over 700,000 memorial wreaths at 1,000 locations in the United States and beyond, including ceremonies at the Pearl Harbor Memorial, as well as Bunker Hill, Valley Forge and the sites of the September 11 tragedies. Over 100,000 wreaths were placed on veterans' graves.

The wreath-laying is still held annually, on the second or third Saturday of December. The effort supports the mission to remember, honor, and teach to be sure no hero is ever forgotten. And that year, December 13, 2008 was unanimously voted by the US Congress as "Wreaths Across America Day".

Rolling Thunder, a veterans advocacy group, will lead the event at the veterans section of the cemetery. On these two days, we'll assist the organization at Arlington National Cemetery to place ribboned wreaths at the foot of every headstone in a touching ceremony that celebrates the lives and service of our military veterans dating back over 150 years.
