Request Public Wreath Laying at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Wreath Laying Ceremony

The opportunity for the public to take part in wreath-laying or other memorial services has actually been made a part of federal law, outlined in Title 32 U.S. Code of Federal Regulation Section 553.22.

Requests are accepted six months to a year in advance of the group's visit, but must be submitted at least 5 weeks in advance. Please note that while dozens of such ceremonies are arranged each week, it is possible that an official event could arise that would take precedence.
