Wreaths Across America Mission Matters – January 2019

A newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.

In 2018, Wreaths Across America grew to include 1,640 participating locations across the country, and expanded the mission to Normandy to say the names of the 9,387 Americans killed there during the D-Day invasions. But, to me the most important number was the growth in volunteers attending National Wreaths Across America Day events. The feedback we’ve received from our locations is that more people than ever are volunteering to join the mission. There is truly no part too small when it comes to Remembering the fallen, Honoring those that serve and Teaching the next generation about the value of freedom. This is why we love this year’s theme so much, because, EVERYONE PLAYS A PART!

I have said this before, the greatest gift I have been given in being part of this mission is having met so many of you, the people who ARE Wreaths Across America, so many that I now call family. I am truly in awe of the work our volunteers do all year round to raise awareness and plan for the next season.

We have so many great things planned for 2019, and I hope you will continue to play a part with Wreaths Across America and help us reach more people to join the mission this year.

Remember – Honor – Teach

With thanks,

Karen Worcester
