The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude. ~Jeff Miller

"The WAA Organization and the Worcester Family have graciously opened their arms & hearts to us.  Getting involved with WAA has certainly been life altering for us, giving us the chance to pay it forward. Delivering a load of veterans wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery over the last 6 years, enables us to witness the overwhelming support of love, patriotism and American pride.  It is very enlightening to meet so many people that truly care that our son gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms."   ~Lorna & Scott Harris, Gold Star Parents

In 2008, over 300 locations held wreath-laying ceremonies in every state, Puerto Rico and 24 overseas cemeteries. Over 100,000 wreaths were placed on veterans’ graves. Over 60,000 volunteers participated. And that year, December 13, 2008 was unanimously voted by the US Congress as “Wreaths Across America Day”.

In 2016, Wreaths Across America and its national network of volunteers laid over 1,200,000 memorial wreaths at 1,200 locations in the United States and beyond, including ceremonies at the Pearl Harbor Memorial, as well as Bunker Hill, Valley Forge and the sites if the September 11 tragedies. This was accomplished with help from 2,047 fundraising groups, corporate partners, and donations of trucking, shipping, and thousands of helping hands. The organization's goal of covering Arlington National Cemetery was met in 2014 with the placement of 226,525 wreaths and has continued for the past two years.

The wreath-laying is held annually, on the second or third Saturday of December. WAA's annual pilgrimage from Harrington, Maine to Arlington National Cemetery has become known as the world’s largest veterans’ parade, stopping at schools, monuments, veterans’ homes and communities all along the way to remind people how important it is to Remember, Honor and Teach.
