This is one of the most rewarding things I have had the chance to do in my life. I get to pay respect for all of those who protected my freedoms. I mark my calendar every year as soon as the date is posted. My daughter and son-in-law take me every year!!

Wreaths Across America is a non profit organization that creates pride and appreciation for our veterans. Their mission of Honor, Respect and Teach cover every walk of life. As an educator, WAA helps us teach our youth to learn about the sacrifices our military personnel make for our freedom. Many of our youth currently in elementary schools, do not have family members that served in our armed forces. They need to learn about the sacrifices that were made for them and WAA is the driving force behind that education. I can not say enough about the mission of this wonderful organization and it is my hope that it continues being the driving force for the education of our youth.

They are easy to volunteer for and a great way to honor our fallen heroes. My father was in the Koren War, my son-in-law was in the Air Force, and has been to Afghanistan, and my nephew served in Army Reserves in Afghanistan as well. At this time we have a young man that was deployed to Guam. I look forward to the wreath laying every year. It is one of favorite parts of Christmas to make sure all of our vets are remembered.

My chance to be a part of the WAA Escort will forever be a lasting memory for me. It was an honor to be part of of this event. The ride from Maine to Virginia, visiting schools, veteran memorials as an escort of the 2014 grand marshall Edith Nowels and her lifelong passion to remember her brother lost during the Battle of the Bulge. Medal of Honor recipient, Bud.
I hope to be able to do this again to Alway Honor Remember and Teach.
