Wreaths Across America
National Wreaths Across America Day
This year, National Wreaths Across America Day will be held on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2023.
The Civil Air Patrol has an important partnership with Wreaths Across America to remember our fallen heroes, honor those who serve and teach our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families.
Wreaths Across America and its national network of volunteers placed 2.7 million veterans’ wreaths at 3,702 participating locations in the United States and beyond last December. This was accomplished with help from the Civil Air Patrol and some two million volunteers across the country, a third of which were children.
