Only 60 More Days Until Wreath Day

Seems like each new week has brought unprecedented events and prayers for our neighbors, from our Islands and southern states to the fires out west.

We are thinking of and praying for all Americans. America is strong. Seventy five years ago, the greatest generation answered the call, and on many occasions since – brave Americans have led the way into the fray. Whole families suffered through the winter at Valley Forge, as witness to the of this new nation.
We are Americans, and we are proud of your relentless spirit and your kindness shown towards those who are suffering. It is amazing to think that in just 60 days, volunteers all across our country will convene to place a wreath – and let those who serve and sacrifice know, we will always remember, and never forget.
Because that is the mission of Wreaths Across America… to Remember, Honor, and Teach. My fellow Americans, you deserve nothing less.
We hope you will enjoy this week’s collection of news and updates!
