Cemeteries are for the living.

Every stone tells a story.

“Each and every marker in a cemetery represents much more than a final resting place,” said Wayne Hanson, WAA chairman of the board and a Vietnam veteran. “It speaks to the personal story of the veteran interred there and acts as a reminder of his or her bravery and sacrifice.”

This will be our seventh year participating in the Wreaths Across America program. Our first year we placed 1100 wreaths upon the hallowed grands at the Jacksonville National Cemetery. For 2015 we are anticipating the need of 7200 wreaths to reach our goal of a remembrance wreath for every headstone.
