Key Exchange Ceremony: Wreaths Across America

Each December, a fellow non-profit organization, Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

On Wednesday, December 15th at 3:30 p.m. the Virginia War Memorial is proud to host an official Wreaths Across America Key Exchange Ceremony. This ceremony highlights the exchanging of the key to the 18-wheeler that is full of wreaths to be placed at veterans cemeteries.

J.B. Hunt Transport Services, the truck company delivering the wreaths to the cemeteries, will be here as their drivers exchange keys.  There will be a brief program to remember the fallen this holiday season.

We invite you for light refreshments and to join the ceremony.
