December 16th is Wreaths Across America Day... and as of today Wreaths Across America are still some 25,000 wreaths short to ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each veteran's gravesite in Arlington National Cemetery and at over 1,200 other military gravesites around the country, at sea and abroad. Each year, the organization lays hundreds of thousands of wreaths at military gravesites. You contribute $15 towards a wreath for our fallen soldiers laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery until December 16th. Please consider making a donation to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.
For those who haven't heard about this wonderful organization, which began in 25 years ago 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.
Please 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....
