There are nearly 15,000 gravesites that need to be covered with a sponsored wreath at the Sarasota National Cemetery. The SMA family does its best to cover as many sites with a wreath as possible through the Wreaths Across America program. Not only does the program honor our veterans, it is also a cadet-driven program where our young people take the lead and experience service learning first hand.
You can be part of this annual event by sponsoring a wreath today and we hope you will join us for the ceremony as well. The sponsorship deadline is Friday, November 22, 2019.
As a registered participant in the program, SMA receives a five dollar rebate for each wreath sponsorship we secure. When you sponsor a wreath, you honor our local resting veterans and donate to SMA too.
Thank you for your kind and generous support.
Show your patriotic appreciation for the thousands of veterans laid to rest at the Sarasota National Cemetery. The remembrance wreath laying ceremony embraces honor and respect for our uniformed service veterans.

Attendees may arrive any time after 7:15 am. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 am and wreath laying will begin at 10:30 am. Families will lay personal wreaths first.
