Wreaths Across America Sarasota is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice.

The annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery started in 1992 is now performed around the country at various locations that include the Sarasota National Cemetery that now has over 5,200 gravesites.
