Wreaths Across America 2018
Join forces with the TVC team outside the Arlington National Cemetery Metro (Silver & Blue lines) at 8:00 AM (note the time change) and we will enter the cemetery together through the Memorial Avenue Main Entrance. Look for a TVC sign outside of the metro (we will be on the opposite side of the street from the entrance).
Volunteers are encouraged to take the Pentagon or Rosslyn Metro and walk to the cemetery (15 minute walk) due to anticipated congestion at the Arlington National Cemetery Metro. There is NO parking available.
Plan to dress in layers with good walking shoes! Please travel light. If you bring a bag, you will need to be searched before entering the cemetery which will hold you up significantly. Also, no umbrellas are allowed in the cemetery!
Wreath Placing Protocol
When placing a wreath on a Veteran’s grave, we are asked to speak that veteran's name aloud, thank them for their service and sacrifice, and reflect on that person and their life.
We hope you can join us to celebrate and honor the lives of those who served their country.
Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 14 December at 2 PM if you are planning on joining us for this very special event.
