Wreaths Across America: Our mission, Remember, Honor, Teach, is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. We also organize a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia where we stop along the way to spread our message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
You are able to sponsor a veteran and honor them by placing a wreath on their grave for $15.00. For every $15.00 wreath you sponsor from the attached link, WAA will donate a portion back to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. With the number of military suicides on the rise this is a way to donate to two wonderful causes at once. Click HERE by November 21st to sponsor a wreath, honor our veterans and save lives. On December 13, 2014, we will be at Indiantown Gap National Cemetary to place wreaths on veterans gravesites while honoring Cpl Dane Freedman. Please check back on the blog for more details in the next couple of days.
