In many homes across the country, there is an empty seat for one who is currently serving or one who died serving for the U.S. military in a foreign war. There is no more meaningful time to express the appreciation than during the holiday season. Contributions are appreciated and can be made at https://bit.ly/WAA-Wilton but are not necessary.

All participants are welcome, and there is no need to make a donation in order to lay wreaths or be a part of the ceremony.

Hosts of the event hope that people will join them for Wreaths Across America Day either in Wilton, or at any of the other 2,500 participating locations across the U.S. for a special ceremony that shows veterans, and their families that they will never be forgotten.
