Christmas Tree Decorating Set for Dec. 14

During the weekend of December 13-15, wreaths will grace the memorial's 142 panels courtesy of Wreaths Across America. The wreath layings are expected to take place on Saturday, the afternoon of Dec. 13. Wreaths Across America expects to exceed last year's shipments of more than 500,000 wreaths to adorn veterans' graves in 50 states and overseas.

A Christmas Tree decorating event will also be hosted by volunteers of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on 10 a.m. on Sunday. Cards and ornaments will be added to the tree, and it will be available for view throughout the holiday season. The Christmas tree will be located at the apex of The Wall.

The public is welcome to attend the Christmas Tree decorating event, add ornaments to the tree, as well as leave items at The Wall.

We encourage you to visit The Wall this season and take a look at this solemn tribute to our fallen.

You can plan your visit here.
