Wreaths Across America STILL Needs 30,000 Wreaths For Arlington

As of Today, Wreaths Across America are still about 30,000 wreaths short 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. You have until December 14th to contribute $15 towards wreaths for our fallen soldiers laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery. Please consider making a contribution to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.

 

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.

Nina, I have heard of this over the years and I am surprised that this year they are still behind, I could understand when the market was down it was hard to do... but now there is no excuse, Endre

Nina what a wonderful charity and purpose. I attended a burial at Arlington for one of my son's friends. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and giving us the opportunity to remember those who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
