Thank you for your interest in volunteering for National Wreaths Across America Day at Arlington National Cemetery on December 17. Here are a few tips to help you: 

  • Be mindful that these are hallowed grounds. Please be respectful of all graves, turf, monuments and headstones, as well as other volunteers.

  • Please be mindful of equipment operators, and follow the directions of ANC staff at all times.

  • Give vehicles and heavy equipment the right of way and let them pass in roadways. Please follow instructions from ANC employees to have a safe experience.

  • Dress for the weather and bring water to stay hydrated during the event.

  • To protect your hands, we recommend bringing gloves to safely carry wreaths to gravesites.

  • Consult a map of the cemetery for locations of restrooms.

  • Download our ANC Explorer app for locations of gravesites.
