A newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.

Dear Wreaths Across America Supporter,

 

We stand on the shoulders of heroes that have gone before us, and really, what we strive to do is live up to their legacy.”

These are the words General James C. McConville shared with journalist Chris Wallace in November, 2020. As the Chief of Staff of the United States Army, General McConville is in his own right a hero. Hearing his humble dedication to those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf truly touched me. Striving to “live up to their legacy” is simpatico with the Wreaths Across America mission, and the new theme for 2021.

Their Legacy is one of courage, character, sacrifice and love of country. These are the attributes that we hope to teach our children. In doing so, we ensure that the next generation fully understands the priceless gift of freedom and it’s cost.

Freedom however cannot be taken for granted and only through the stories of those who have protected it and the personal bond we can form between them and our children can we raise up a generation dedicated to the stewardship of our beloved America.

The future of this nation depends on our “living up to their legacy.” We must help the next generation move forward understanding the principles of patriotism. Patriotism that begins at home, spreads to community, and then to country. In our children we instill the legacy of the future.

With gratitude,

How can you Join the Mission in 2021?

Start a Sponsorship Group

As a pay back group, your civic, nonprofit, school or other group can help raise wreath sponsorships for a participating cemetery, and a $5 for each $15 of the funds raised will be given back to you for you to support your program locally. Since 2007, WAA has given back $15 million to other like-minded organizations through this awesome program!

 

As a 3-for-2 group, a third wreath is placed for every two wreath sponsorships made. This is a great way to ensure as many veterans as possible are honored and remembered at the participating cemetery you support!
