Even if you can't get out to help with the wreaths, at Christmas, this is such a good way to remember those who have sacrificed for their country.

Wreaths Across America Needs Your Support To Honor America's Fallen Heroes This Christmas Season 

 

December 14th is Wreaths Across America Day... you can help ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each fallen veteran's gravesite on December 14th 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 2019 theme for Wreaths Across America is: "Everyone Plays A Part." Please think about playing your part and support this cause by volunteering and or donating.

If you haven't heard about this wonderful organization, which began 27 years ago with a trailer-load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. In 2018, nearly 1.8 million veteran wreaths were placed on headstones at 1,640 participating cemeteries around the country in honor of the service and sacrifices made for our freedoms, with each name said out loud.  The mission of Wreath Across America 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.

Kathy my father in-law was a Veteran of WWII.  He and my mother in-law are buried together in our local Veterans Cemetery.  This year for the first time we purchase a wreath from Wreaths Across America, and will continue to do so every year from now on.

This is the first I've heard of this event.  It certainly sounds like a fine thing to participate in during the holiday season.

A friend of mine posted a video of the vehicles going through his town in Maine. It brought tears to my eyes.

Interesting. I grew up near a national cemetery. It was always so well kept and flags were always on the graves during special occasions. I don't recall wreaths being there during the holidays. I'll have to ask my mom. My father and my maternal grandparents are buried in that beautiful cemetery along with other distant relatives.
