On Dec. 14, 2019, Americans placed 2.2 million wreaths on the graves of veterans at 2,158 locations scattered throughout the U.S. In Arlington National Cemetery alone, 38,000 volunteers distributed 254,000 wreaths. This national tradition of wreath-laying began 28 years ago when a Maine native and owner of a wreath company desired to show his respect to our veterans and to thank them for their service. National Wreaths Across America Day has since become a national movement involving millions of Americans.
