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!!
Volunteering with WAA is a family tradition for us. We always leave feeling humbled and blessed to live in a nation who so many fought for.
Can only say that all of us involved have our hearts in the right place !! A truly humbling experience !! With all the bad stuff in this world,it helps restore my faith in humanity' So proud to be a part of this !!!!!!!
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.
This is a great program. Last year was my family first year with wreaths across America so glad we got involved . and so glad we did. so come on and step up and help show our veterans that we care. Rember Honor Teach. Jennifer Anderson
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.
This organization honors soldiers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. Laying a wreath at a soldiers gravesite is a humbling experience. Truly an amazing organization. We've helped support it now for over three years and look forward to supporting it again this December.
My friends introduced me to Wreaths Across America in 2010 and I have been participating in the annual wreath laying at Arlington ever since - and I plan to do so every year. It is such an incredible experience! I am honored to be able to walk this hallowed ground and remember our veterans in this way, especially those that made the ultimate sacrifice. I encourage everyone to learn the history behind Wreaths Across America, which was founded by the Worcester family. This organization lives up to their mission of "Remember, Honor, Teach" and I am proud to be a part of it.
As a Gold Star parent (lost a son in military service), it is extremely important to have his life remembered. Wreaths Across America puts into action their mission of Remember, Honor and Teach. All three parts of the mission statement are equally important. WAA does an excellent job carrying out the mission. I am proud to be a volunteer for this first class nonprofit.
