I purchase wreaths as a way tin memory of my father and my father in law. For each wreath I purchase another wreath is donated to be placed on the grave of a service member who has sacrificed everything for our country. This year I plan to volunteer with the laying of the wreaths at Arlington.
My husband passed away last October. After the funeral my daughter told me she had heard about Wreaths Across America and I tried to contact them. Messages were left on both sides of the phone and I knew I had missed the deadline to add my husband to their list. The holidays were upon us and I went to Ft. Sam to put flowers on his grave and as I approached his grave I discovered to my delight that they had placed a wreath on his grave. That act of kindness truly meant so much to me and made my holiday so very special. From now on they will always have my support. My children and I will be at Ft. Sam to join them in placing wreaths on others graves this and every holiday.
When my husband and I went to visit my father and mothers grave site at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell,Fl in January, we were both very touched. It made me feel like they were not forgotten.
Thank you all so much.
Wreaths across American was started out of the live and respect of our heroes both accounted and those that are still listed ad POW/MIA. The wreath company minutes and transmits thousands upon thousands if wreaths at Christmas time for our national cemeteries. then volunteers transport, unload, place and clean up. having myfother as one of the ?
