Horton Wreath Society supporting:
Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery
5310 Milners Road, Suffolk, VA 23434

Local and other interested friends continue to join together each year to honor our Veterans by placing a wreath at each grave site and columbarium row.
With your support, we hope to continue this in the coming years.
Approximately 13,000 wreaths will be placed at the cemetery this year.
We are planning on reverting back to utilizing buses to transport volunteers from Kings Fork High School to the cemetery on 17 December starting at 7:00 AM.
Registered Red Flag families will be able to lay their wreaths starting on
Friday, December 16, 2022 (9:00 AM to 4:00 PM).

If you wish to make a donation, please mail it to:
Horton Wreath Society
PO Box 6246
Virginia Beach, VA 23456-0246
501(c)(3) Non-Profit Charitable Organization


97% of all donations go toward the purchase of the wreaths.
Hopefully, this year’s event may have a formal ceremony. Please continue to watch our website for information regarding any ceremony. Volunteers who want to help with the 14th & 15th of December Wreath preparation should register at our 
Sign-Up Genius link:

The wreaths will be placed on Saturday,
December 17, 2022 starting at 9:30 AM.

Since we plan to revert back to utilizing busses to transport all general volunteers from Kings Fork High School to the Cemetery starting at 7:00 AM on 17 December, there will be no parking at the cemetery unless directed.

Only if the Pandemic comes back into play will we go back to business similar to the prior two years of Pandemic procedures. We will be using the Sign-up Genius system on our website for two purposes listed below. If you have a family member or loved one interred at the cemetery and you do not wish a wreath be placed on the grave site by others, a Red Flag will be placed at each grave site to identify no wreath placement except by the family.

Please submit a “Red Flag Reservation,” Red Flag and Volunteer Link 

Volunteers are needed to assist on the 14th & 15th of December unloading and re-loading our trucks in preparation for our event. This two day Working Party will be located at the National Guard Armory, 2761 Godwin Blvd, Suffolk VA. We will be making Friday, December 16, 2022 open to all Red Flag families to come prior to the event day between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM so, please, use our Sign-up Genius to reserve a Red flag.

New Item, we are establishing the January wreath clean up Volunteer list on our Sign-up Genius for 12 & 13 January to assist in picking up and disposing of the wreaths from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Please come out and help with this last piece of work if you have the time.
