Wreaths Across America desperately needs support this month in order to ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each veteran's gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery and at over 1,100 other military gravesites around the country, at sea and abroad. The organization lays almost 250,000 wreaths at gravesites. It still needs contributions for tens of thousands of wreaths before December 14th for Arlington Cemetery.
For those who haven't heard about this wonderful organization, which began in 1992 with a trailer load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery , its mission is to:
REMEMBER the fallen;
HONOR those who serve;
TEACH our children the value of freedom.
December 17th is Wreaths Across America Day... and you can help by sponsoring a wreath. It's only $15 to honor a fallen hero. Click on the picture below to send your contribution to sponsor a wreath. You can sponsor a wreath for Arlington Cemetary or for a local cemetary.
We are not here to "decorate graves. We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives....
...Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America
