Wreaths Across America Needs Your Support For Military Cemeteries

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.

 

Learn more about the Wreaths Across America organization here.

 

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

 

In the Charlotte, North Carolina area, Wreaths Across America a commemorative events will be held in The Town of Waxhaw on December 17th at noon.

Brian England ~ hi Brian... of course, the "problem" is that those buried in Arlington Cemetery often are from families who live hundreds and thousands of miles away and can't do much.

Hi Nina Hollander 

WAA is a tremendous organization. Each year the convoy, led by the Patriot Guard, stops at the Topsfield Fair Grounds in Topsfield, MA. In our town of Georgetown, we will place over 200 wreaths on Veteran graves.

Doug Dawes ~ hi Doug... you are so right... this is a tremendous organization and I'm so happy it morphed from decorating Arlington National Cemetary into an international cause to decorate the graves of our fallen heroes.

When a wreath is placed we say the name of the veteran and salute.

Hi Nina Hollander - just saw this.  My son works at Riverside National Cemetery in Southern California. He says there are 250,000 graves there and only about 2 to 3,000 have wreaths.  So this is a big deal.

 I just realized that he served in the 2nd Marines out of North Carolina. So he was in your neck of the woods!

They are very sparse. I was going to do a story but got way behind on blogging. I am so glad you did. I wish I would have seen this sooner.

One more pic.  My son says that every memorial monument in the park gets a wreath as well as a couple of thousand graves.  He took many pics to show me.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® ~ hi Sheri... they managed to get wreaths for all the graves at Arlington National, but I knew that quite a few of the regional cemeteries did not have enough. It's relalyu a shame. That memorial monument looks really lovely and peaceful.
