I was honored in the past couple of years to escort on three different trips, a WW2 Veteran back to Washington DC to see the WW2 Memorial. While in Washington, we visited Arlington and it was the most awe inspiring part of our three days in Washington. My donation is the least I can do for what these brave Americans did for all of us! God bless them all and God Bless America.

Wreaths Across America is an experience and to truly appreciate what it does, one should spend an hour at a National Cemetery laying a wreath or a couple wreaths on the gravesides of our veterans. Read the headstone aloud, especially to a child or grandchild. Tell the story of World War II or Korea or Viet Nam or even the Cold War or more currently, the Global War on Terror. Discuss the service and the sacrifice our veterans have made, their branch of service.

Wreaths Across America is a great organization. I had the pleasure of participating a couple years ago, and it was an incredible experience. I look forward to getting more involved this year.

I found Wreaths Across America this year and will be volunteering with this admirable organization for the first time in December 2016. Hopefully I will be doing the full convoy starting in Maine and ending in Arlington Virginia. I am so excited for this event and will be enjoying every minute

I've participated in this great project for several years now. Not only is it humbling to see Arlington Cemetary decorated with the wreaths, it's been rewarding to teach my young great nieces and nephews all about the service their grandfather gave to this Country.
