Wreaths Across America Needs Your Support To Honor Our Military Heroes

Wreaths Across America Needs Your Support To Honor Our Military Veterans This Christmas Season 

 

December 15th will be Wreaths Across America Day... you can help ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each veteran's gravesite on December 15th at Arlington National Cemetery and at over 1,400 other military gravesites around the country, at sea and abroad. You can help by sponsoring a veteran's wreath at a cemetery near you, by volunteering or by donating to a local fundraising group. Each year, the Wreaths Across America organization lays millions of wreaths at military gravesites. 

 

Please consider making a donation to Wreaths Across America to honor those who paid the ultimate price throughout our history for the freedoms we enjoy to this day. The 2018 theme for Wreaths Across America is: "Be Their Witness."

If you haven't heard about this wonderful organization, which began 26 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.

 

Learn more about the Wreaths Across America organization here.

 

 

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....

Good Morning Nina Hollander 

You are a girl after my own heart. I've been working with our town WAA coordinator for the last few years. This weekend we are able to place a wreath on each Georgetown veteran's grave. 

15 December is when the ceremony is. One year I will go to Arlington National and participate there.

Nina,

Thank you for letting us know.  When we lived in Los Angeles, there is a huge VA cemetary on the West Side.  We passed it quite often, and I remember seeing those wreaths.  A
