Every year on National Wreaths Across America Day, Wreaths Across America sets out to remember fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve and teach children the value of freedom. Wreaths Across America Day is an annual event that takes place every third Saturday in December at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as other cemeteries in the U.S., at sea and abroad. Wreaths are laid as family and friends remember both those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who currently serve in the armed forces.
