The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember, honor and preserve the history of our veteran's service to their country. Wreaths Across America is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.
Wreaths Across America also organizes a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia with various stops along the way to spread the message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
The week of events is made possible by thousands of volunteers who organize local ceremonies, raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and participate in the events. The cost of the programs is paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer professional truck drivers.
The Baton Rouge Legion of Honor-Shriner's Veterans encourage you to sponsor a local wreath at the Port Hudson National Cemetery.
