WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA
Wreaths Across America is an organization which coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 2,100 locations across the United States, at sea and abroad. Every December, Georgia National Cemetery Advisory Council (GNCAC) participates in this initiative to remember and honor veterans and families interred at Georgia National Cemetery.
Join us by sponsoring veterans’ wreaths at Georgia National Cemetery. For every $1000 GNCAC receives, 100 fresh wreaths honoring 100 veterans will be placed. With over 20,000 veterans to remember, your support is needed and appreciated. We encourage you to give what you can by November 30. Simply download a donation form to mail in your generous contribution or donate online. Veterans' wreaths are $15 each or three for $30. Thank you for helping this critical cause.
In order to comply with Covid 19 restrictions, our Wreaths Across America event will be spread out over a three day period; Thursday, December 17 thru Saturday, December 19.
Thursday and Friday are for families and those wishing to place a wreath on one or more specific gravesites. Anyone wishing to volunteer to place wreaths and avoid the congestion on Saturday, is also welcome on Thursday or Friday. Saturday, our volunteers will place the remaining wreaths. Masks and social distancing will be required. There will be no public ceremony this year, however, a virtual ceremony will be posted to our website and social media.
