[eNewsletter #163] Together, we did it…

From the Wreaths Across America organization.


Together, We Did It!

I am excited to share with everyone, that as of this week, we received enough support for full coverage of Arlington National Cemetery.In total, 1,570,000 will be placed at 1,422 participating locations nationwide.
There are still working and trucks being loaded. So we will be accepting sponsored wreaths until Wednesday, for any location where the trucks have not departed yet. Any wreath sponsored ships received that did not make the truck, will be placed in 2018 – so they always go to honor our veterans.
This has been a busy week, as the annual Wreath Escort makes its way out of Maine and on the road down to Arlington. I think you will really enjoy some of the highlights below.
