The Worcester Wreath Company, through a campaign called Wreaths Across America, began donating holiday wreaths in tribute to Veterans laid to rest at VA’s national cemeteries and state Veterans cemeteries in 2006.  Since 1992, they have donated wreaths for gravesites at Arlington National Cemetery. The Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Cemetery Administration are coordinating wreath ceremonies around the country as a part of Wreaths Across America.
