Delivering Truckloads of Respect

Each holiday season WAA’s “Honor Fleet” of over 300 volunteer drivers and Trucks deliver “truckloads of respect” filled with more than a million Remembrance Wreaths to be placed on veterans graves all over the Country.

This year WAA is offering a gift opportunity for our youngest supporters that teaches not only the Remember Honor Teach mission but the spirit of volunteerism with our building block wreath delivery truck paired with a veterans wreath.
