For over 20 years, wreaths have honored veterans in each branch of the military in over 2,100 participating locations in all 50 states and 24 national veteran cemeteries on foreign soil. Over 100,000 wreaths have been donated and more than 65,000 volunteers have participated in the project. To lay a wreath at a specific grave, fill out this Grave Specific Form.
