Welcome to the inaugural issue of Mission Matters!
These two words — mission matters — have been the guiding principle used in all that Wreaths Across America has done and plans to do in the future. Our mission — to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and their families, and Teach our children about the cost of freedom — resonates in the homes of every American across this great country.
Year after year we see new volunteers step forward from every walk of life to become part of and share this mission in communities in every state. We will share their stories of patriotism and community with you here each month as well as on a new radio program with the same name that I’m excited to be hosting on Wreaths Across America Radio starting in March.
2017 was our most successful year to date, with more than 1.5million veterans’ wreaths placed on headstones of our fallen veterans. Click on the link below to download the infographic to see additional details from 2017. We are expecting that number to continue to grow in 2018 and beyond because of the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and the generous support of many grateful Americans.
Thank you for reading and sharing the mission to Remember, Honor, Teach.
