Wreaths Across America

This will be the seventh year for National Wreaths Across America Day at the Saratoga National Cemetery. Through community donations, fifteen thousand wreaths have been ordered. Because all fifteen thousand wreaths were ordered it will ensure that every grave at Saratoga National Cemetery will don a holiday remembrance wreath.
