National Wreaths Across America Day Is Dec. 18th! It’s Not Too Late To Join Us In Honoring Veterans.

An update from the Wreaths Across America organization – and a reminder that you can help support our US Navy Sea Cadets – Arkansas Division by sponsoring one or more wreaths through them (click here for more information).

As we near National Wreaths Across America Day, this year on Saturday, December 18, I wanted to share a few different ways you can join the mission over the next couple of weeks. Keep reading for more details.

  1. Sponsor a veteran’s wreath: We remember veterans’ service and sacrifice by telling their stories so that the next generation will know the men and women who fought for our freedoms. We remember their brothers and sisters in arms who paid the ultimate sacrifice by placing wreaths on their headstones.

What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 3,100 locations nationwide. And as each wreath is placed, a volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten.

 

Through Dec. 16, any sponsored wreaths made through our partners Jersey Mike’s Subs will be MATCHED up to $500,000 – that’s two veterans honored with your $15 sponsorship.

 

So, what does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to our veterans.
