Honoring Those Who Gave The Most

Never Forgetting Our Fallen Heroes

Give back to those who gave it all

Wreaths for Fallen Heroes was founded to honor our U.S. Veterans each Holiday Season. During the month of December, our volunteers decorate the headstones at the Springfield National Cemetery with a wreath to honor their service and sacrifice. Many of our fallen heroes headstones go undecorated each year. It’s our mission to ensure that no hero is forgotten. 100% of all donations go directly to the cause.

What you can to do help

Please help us continue to show our appreciation to our many fallen heroes showing they are not forgotten. You may do so by making a donation in person, by mail, or stopping by any Bank of Missouri location and making a donation to the Itus Virtus Wreaths for Fallen Heroes program.

Donate A Wreath

Many veteran headstones go undecorated each year. Donate a wreath to a Veteran’s headstone at the Springfield National Cemetery this year. It’s a small token of appreciation for their comittment to protecting our freedom.

Volunteer Your Time

Soldiers from across the US are buried at the Springfield National Cemetery. Often times relatives live too far away to place wreaths themselves. Volunteers are always welcome to help us pay our respect to our fallen soldiers.

$100 Salute

With any cash or check donation of a $100 or greater, you will receive a thank you letter and tax donation letter if the donation is mailed to Itus Virtus. With your help, our goal is to have a wreath for every soldier.
