Wreaths across America helps with the grieving process for families. Seeing the wreaths on each marker is special and acknowleges all the soldiers. Last December was our 1st year. Will be ordering another and several more for other sites.
I needed a quick thoughtful gift to let a friend know she was being thought of on 9/11. I emailed WAA and they jumped into action for me! I ended up sending her a gift card of a wreath bought in her husbands name in remembrance of her losing her husband in the Pentagon. They were awesome!
I visit Family that live not far from Worcester Wreath. For the past 25 or more years I pass the Warehouse on the way to my parents who retired to Maine, visit my Brother who was Stationed with C.G. in Jonesport Me. When I took my Late Husband, Duke up to meet the Family he shared the Wreaths Across America program. He himself being a veteran of the Army, Comm. Of A.Legion for over 25 years. We posted flags with Boy an Girl Svouts every Memorial Day. I lost my Husband 3 1/2 yrs. Ago. My Mom shared how Worcester Wreaths had dog tags for those who gave all and those who are still with us. They place it on a tree. My daughter Cami and I went this summer for vacation and visit family. We decided to get a dog tag for my Duke. If you ever get the chance to do this I would. We where taken to the area I thought the forever lit Tree was. O it was there, but that isnt where we were placing Dukes tags. Every soldier's family picks a tree. That they place their soldiers tag on. It its then taken a pic with family and will be recorded. When the time comes for the tree to be cut. The soldiers tags are placed on another tree to forever be remembered. There is a Gold Star section for tags. A camp soldiers can stay with family. A chapel. A view that is breath taking. My hope is to be able to attend placing wreaths at Arlington National Cemtary with Wreaths Acrossed America and families. To say their name and place the wreaths. So they will never be Forgotten.

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.
