With Military Appreciation Month fast approaching, we take time to reflect upon the sacrifices
made by our military, veterans, and their families. Culminating on Memorial Day, National Military Appreciation Month stands as an opportunity to remember, honor, and teach in very tangible ways.
While many Americans will take advantage of the warming weather and beautiful blooming
trees to celebrate an unofficial start to summer, at Wreaths Across America, we share in the
unity this month grants to continue to recognize our nation’s military and veterans. We’d like to
offer ideas of how you can support the military, veterans, and their families in your own
communities.

Remember – Honor – Teach
