Wreaths Across America Needs Help Placing Wreaths on Veteran’s Gravestones for Christmas.
In a recent interview, Executive Director Karen Worcester, told Breitbart News Daily Sirius XM host Matt Boyle on Tuesday, “The cutoff for Arlington is December 14. We’re just a few thousand short” to cover every headstone at Arlington National Cemetery with a fresh evergreen wreath on December 17, which is National Wreaths Across America Day.
Since 1992, Wreaths Across America has slowly but surely grown, quietly covering the graves at Arlington of military heroes. But their mission has gone beyond simply covering every grave at Arlington, and their work can be seen at over 1200 cemeteries all across America.
Wreaths Across America is a non-political, non-denominational 501c3; their mission is “to remember the fallen, honor those that serve, and most importantly, to teach kids the value and the cost of what freedom is,” said Worcester.
Please see the Wreaths Across America website for additional ways to help the effort.
