[eNewsletter #161] For Freedom Fighters, From Freedom Caretakers…

From the Wreaths Across America organization.

For Freedom Fighters,

By Freedom Caretakers

Today is #GivingTuesday and my challenge to you today, is to give 4 minutes of your time, to either watch this video or share it with someone you love and respect. The WAA Mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach is what we owe our ‘Freedom Fighters’ but even more so, we need to show them we will be the ‘Freedom Caretakers’.
So this year on December 16th, families all across this Nation will bring their children out to place wreaths, and start a conversation about what it means to serve and sacrifice. It is up to each of us to take them, and teach them.
