Wreaths Across America San Diego Partners with The Patriots Connection to Honor Fallen Heroes

Soldiers placing wreath at grave

Every December, the San Diego community comes together for the Wreaths Across America (WAA) ceremonies to honor our veterans, remember our fallen heroes, and teach our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families.

Each wreath honors all servicemen and women for their selfless sacrifice and that of their families who are without loved ones during the holidays.

Again this year, The Patriots Connection is proud to partner with Wreaths Across America San Diego to match your donation with a second wreath for every one you sponsor.

Each wreath costs $15. It’s a small gift that has a great impact to remember our heroes, honor their sacrifice and teach future generations that freedom is not free.

COVID-19 2020 Update

This year there will not be any large wreath laying ceremonies like in the past. Wreaths Across America Headquarters and the National Cemeteries Association have provided guidelines to comply with current COVID-19 local rules and to ensure the protection and safety of the volunteers who place the wreaths. If you have questions regarding the placing of wreaths, please contact WAA-SD.
