Nationally, the Wreath Laying Process will look different this year. On Saturday, December 19th, the Wreath Laying ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery will not be a public event, instead; it will be streamed live. Those who are interested in volunteering to place wreaths must sign up in advanced for a scheduled time December 16 – 18. Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is adhering to CDC requirements, so masks and gloves are required.
