For more than three decades, American Legion Family members across the nation have joined with other Americans to gather in December to "remember our fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve, and teach children the value of freedom" through the placing of wreaths on veterans’ graves.
This year, Dec. 16 will mark the 31st National Wreaths Across America Day. Annually, more than 1 million wreaths are placed across more than 4,000 locations in the United States and throughout the world, honoring the veterans buried at those gravesites.
American Legion posts and Legion Family members participating in this annual program are encouraged to email email@example.com in advance to share your plans for potential coverage in American Legion media. Posts can share their wreath-laying stories on the Legion's web page www.legiontown.org.
