Join your fellow W&M alums as we participate in wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery on December 12. The day starts with the ceremonial Wreaths Across America truck parade at the main entrance at 8:30am. We’ll meet at the Arlington National Cemetery sign in front of the Visitor Center at 8:30am (9am, if you don’t want to watch the parade). At 9:15am we’ll head over to the opening ceremony. After the opening ceremony, wreath laying begins throughout the cemetery with special ceremonies occurring at 11am (President Kennedy’s grave), 11:30am (USS Battleship Maine Mast), and 12pm (Tomb of the Unknown Soldier).
