HONOR AMERICA'S FALLEN HEROES AND LIVE UP TO THEIR LEGACY THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON
DONATE A WREATH FOR WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY
December 18, 2021 is National Wreaths Across America Day... you can help ensure that a Christmas remembrance wreath is placed at each fallen veteran's gravesite on December 18th at Arlington National Cemetery and at over 2,750 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 2021 theme for Wreaths Across America is "Live Up To Their Legacy." Please think about playing your part and support this cause by volunteering and or donating.
Video: What Is Wreaths Across America
This amazing organization, had its start 29 years ago with a trailer-load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. In 2020, approximately 1.7 million veterans’ wreaths were placed by volunteers on headstones at 2,557 at participating cemeteries around the country in honor of the service and sacrifices made for our freedoms, with each name said out loud. In 2020, at Arlington National Cemetery alone, and in spite of rain and cold, thousands of volunteers placed 250,000 wreaths.
“A person dies twice: once when they take their final breath, and later, the last time their name is spoken.”
The mission of Wreaths 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.
"We are not here to 'decorate' graves. We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives...."
