Wreaths Across America at Andrew Johnson National Cemetery

Greeneville, TN – Following updated guidance from the 2020 National Wreaths Across America Day organization, and in our commitment to ensuring the safety of our community, there will not be a public Wreaths Across America ceremony at Andrew Johnson National Cemetery this year.
Wreath placement will continue as scheduled on Wednesday, December 17th. “It’s important that we remember and honor our veterans,” said Dave Foster, Superintendent, Andrew Johnson NHS.
The Andrew Johnson Heritage Association (AJHA), the park’s official Friends group, sponsored this year’s “Christmas Gift of Remembrance” to garner community support to ensure each gravesite would receive a wreath. “The outpouring of support from the local community and other organizations has been tremendous!,” said Foster. “Every veterans’ gravesite in our national cemetery will have a wreath this year.”
Visitors are encouraged to visit the national cemetery and pay respects during the wreaths’ season, from Sunday, December 20 through Wednesday, January 20, 2021, when the wreaths will be retrieved.
Please plan to join us next year on December 18, 2021, to honor and remember our local heroes at our ceremony for national Wreaths Across America Day.
