This week of events is made possible by thousands of volunteers who organize local ceremonies, raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and participate in the events. They receive no government funding. The cost of their programs is paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer truckers. Our detachment, alongside the Young Marines, helps promote and sell wreaths that are delivered to and placed on the graves at Barrancas National Cemetery, NAS Pensacola. We also help to organize the ceremony, find guest speakers, set up for the event, as well as clean up the cemetery after the event. To purchase a wreath please contact the Young Marines.
