Remember, Honor, and Teach about our nation’s veterans, service members and their families in 2021.
“Wreaths Across America” will make a stop locally at the Carl W. Dassaint VFW Post in Brattleboro on Monday December 13th at approximately 5pm.
You can sponsor a live, handmade balsam wreath for $15 at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org. Each sponsorship goes toward a veteran’s wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero as we endeavor to honor all veterans laid to rest on Saturday, December 18, 2021, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day.

Wreaths Across America’s mission to Remember, Honor and Teach lasts all year long, far beyond the single day in December when we coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies, all throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works, in a number of ways, to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget.
Remember our fallen veterans.
When a volunteer places a wreath on a veteran’s grave on National Wreaths Across America Day, we encourage them to speak that veteran’s name aloud, thank them for their service and sacrifice, and reflect on that person and their life along with our wreath-laying ceremonies. At all cemeteries throughout the country, WAA also holds special memorial ceremonies.
Honor those who serve.
The group participates in veterans’ events throughout the year and has a veteran liaison on staff to work with local veterans’ organizations, as well as public outreach through Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs, public service announcements, press coverage and the WAA website.
Teach our children the value of freedom.
Wreaths Across America is committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed to protect those freedoms.
Our Mobile Education Exhibit as well as our “escort to Arlington” (convoy of wreath delivery trucks to Arlington National Cemetery) stop at many schools. We offer learning experiences, interactive media projects and opportunities for schools, 4-H, scouts, and other youth groups to participate in our efforts.
On the Tip-lands in Maine where the tips of balsam fir trees are harvested to become veterans wreaths for Wreaths Across America Day, replica dog tags of thousands of replica veterans dog-tags create a living memorial of fallen veterans living back to other fallen veterans.
