Wreaths Across America: Mission Matters – December 2019

The monthly newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.


Click to view this email online.

On behalf of the Wreaths Across America organization and its extended family of volunteers and supporters across the country, we want to thank YOU for your support of the Mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve and their families and Teach the next generation the value of freedom.

With each of the 2.2 million sponsored veterans’ wreaths placed on Dec. 14 by nearly 3 million volunteers, an American hero’s name was spoken out loud so they would not be forgotten. There was also an opportunity to teach, not just the children, but the communities as a whole, about their local history and heritage.

As we head into this holiday season, may we all take the time to remember and thank those who served and sacrificed protecting our freedoms, as well as those currently serving, so that we can celebrate as we wish in the land of the free because of the brave.

Wishing you all a safe, and joyous holiday season!

Advancing the mission overseas – Luxembourg and the Netherlands!

2019 also saw the continued expansion of the mission overseas with the placement of more than 13,000 veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of our WWII heroes laid to rest at Luxembourg American Cemetery and Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial. These locations were fitting given the recent 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge as most of those resting in the two cemeteries were casualties of this battle.

We are proud to continue to expand this mission until one day, all those who served and sacrificed for our freedoms are honored.

It’s never too early or too late to give the gift of remembrance. Sponsor a $15 veteran’s wreath today as a gift for the holidays and ensure an American hero is honored next December.

Wreaths Across America: Mission Matters – November 2019

The deadline to sponsor a wreath is 02 December.


Click to view this email online.

As we kick off the week of Thanksgiving, I’d like to take a moment to thank you for your support of our veterans, active military and their families, Gold Star families and our mission to Remember, Honor, Teach.

Today, I am beyond excited to share that we have a record number of participating locations taking part in this year’s National Wreaths Across America Day – 2,095! That’s more than 450 new locations joining the mission in their own community. Odds are there is a location close by that you can participate in and/or support. Here’s a link to find one near you.

The Wreaths Across America program was started after a simple gesture of thanks struck a chord of patriotism and spread across the country. What’s more American than over 2 million volunteers and their communities supporting a mission that can impact the minds of children with patriotism that they will carry forward into the future?

Everyone plays a part, and I speak from the bottom of my heart when I say how grateful I am for your support – this mission matters.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Karen Worcester

2019 Escort to Arlington Announced!

The county’s longest veterans’ parade – Wreaths Across America’s annual escort to Arlington National Cemetery – kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 7. National President of American Gold Star Mothers Inc. (AGSM) Mona Gunn will lead the caravan as this year’s Grand Marshal.

To view the complete schedule, please visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/arlington-escort-information.

“I have had the honor of traveling in the escort to Arlington several times now and look forward to the opportunity each year to join my fellow Americans in saying not only my son Cherone’s name out loud, but that of so many of our heroes,” said Mona Gunn, President of AGSM, and this year’s grand marshal.

“Wreaths Across America provides opportunities for us to carry out our mission – finding strength in the fellowship of other Gold Star Mothers who strive to keep the memory of our sons and daughters alive by working to help veterans, those currently serving, their families and our communities.”

Volunteering on National Wreaths Across America Day? Things to know…
If you are planning to join the mission on National Wreaths Across America Day this year – Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019 – there are a few tips to keep in mind to help make your experience a great one!
  • Access.  Parking and cemetery access at every participating location is unique. We encourage you to visit the cemetery’s website and WAA Location Page (and social media pages) ahead of your travel to the location for up-to-date information. We highly recommend car-pooling and use of public transportation wherever available.
  • Dress for the weather. Most participating locations will not have indoor access for volunteers.
  • Be patient. Depending on where you are in the country and the number of participants at the location you attend, there could be large crowds and lines. Remember, each location is run by volunteers who are working hard behind the scenes to move things along as quickly and safely as possible.
  • Take your time. Please pause at each headstone and say that veteran’s name out loud before moving on. If there are not enough sponsored wreaths to honor every veteran at the location, please still take time to stop at headstones without a wreath to say their names.
  • Be respectful. Wreaths Across America and all our volunteers are guests of each of the more than 2,000 participating locations where ceremonies and wreath laying events are happening. Please abide by all cemetery policies and remember you are walking on sacred, hallowed grounds.
  • Remember. Honor. Teach. The event you are participating in is happening all around the country, with millions of Americans who, like you, have taken time out of the busiest of seasons to gather together in their community to offer a simple gesture of thanks to those who fought for our freedoms. Thank you for playing a part!

Advancing the Mission to Luxembourg and Netherlands

Earlier this month, Wreaths Across America announced that is has been granted permission by the Luxembourg and Netherlands authorities and the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) to place Maine-made balsam fir veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of all 5,073 U.S. service members laid to rest at Luxembourg American Cemetery, and an additional 8,291 veterans’ wreaths at Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial.

The Luxembourg American Cemetery public ceremony and wreath placement will be held on Saturday, Nov. 30. The following day, Sunday, Dec. 1, a ceremony and wreath placement will be held at Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial located in Margraten, Netherlands. These locations are two of 26 permanent American overseas military cemeteries overseen by the ABMC.

The live balsam veterans’ wreaths are being gifted to WAA as a donation from Founder, Morrill Worcester. It has long been a dream of his to one day place a wreath in honor of every U.S. veteran laid to rest, worldwide. The transportation of the nearly 14,000 wreaths from Maine to Europe is once again being coordinated and executed through the generous in-kind support of global supply chain management company CEVA Logistics and the transatlantic cargo capacity of United Airlines.

Sponsor Spotlight – New England Chevrolet

For the 5th year in a row Chevrolet — who has generously sponsored the WAA escort vehicles transporting participating Gold Star families and veterans down the east coast from Maine to Virginia — will again provide wrapped vehicles in addition to sponsoring 4,000 wreaths for placement at Arlington National Cemetery.

“Chevrolet and it’s dealers are proud to support the work of the Wreaths Across America team and deliver the message of their mission to Remember, Honor and Teach. This annual tradition has become a cornerstone event for Chevrolet and it’s dealers here in the Northeast Region,” said Dan Adamcheck, regional director, sales, service and marketing for Chevrolet. “To be able to give back to our communities, and the men and women who have given so much to our country is truly an honor for Chevrolet and its employees.”

Wreaths Across America: Mission Matters – September 2019

The monthly newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.


Click to view this email online.

Happy Fall – the start of my favorite time of year here in Maine! The air is cool and crisp, and the leaves have started to change colors. This is also the time of year that the team here really starts to feel the ramp up to National Wreaths Across America Day.

When we first began this mission in 2007, we used to plan for the “season,” beginning in October and lasting through December. Today, we know that Wreaths Across America is more than a “season” or for that matter, more than one day in December. It is a year-long mission and mindset that has grown to include more than 3 million volunteers nationwide, and has brought communities in every state together with a shared goal to remember the fallen, honor those that serve and their families, and teach the next generation the value of freedom.

My hope is that you, too, will play a part this year.

Join us in raising the American Flag every Tuesday at 9 am ET

On September 11, 2019, the Town of Freeport celebrated the Flag Ladies as they made their last stand. Citizens and dignitaries showered them with respect and praise, noting their impact on the town, state, and nation. Major General (Ret.) John W. Libby who served as Maine’s Adjutant General of the National Guard during the 9-11 attacks and their aftermath asked this question during his tribute speech. “Unanswered this morning, is who will lift the flag in the spirit of 9-12 now that these remarkable ladies have moved on?”

The answer to that question is Wreaths Across America.

On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Wreaths Across America and its largest corporate donor, Worcester Wreaths, unveiled a new flagpole and monument dedicated to the Freeport Flag Ladies. Together, they raised the flag at 9 AM and Wreaths Across America committed to doing so every Tuesday morning moving forward, thus keeping the legacy of the Freeport Flag ladies alive uniting citizens in the spirit of 9-12.

Wreaths Across America: Mission Matters – August 2019

A newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.


Click to view this email online.

As another school year begins, I want to reshare my thoughts from last August as I am again reminded of how important the TEACH piece of our mission is for the future of this great country.

All too often as parents, we rely on educators to teach our children about the meaning (and cost) of our freedoms as Americans. In truth, it is all of our responsibilities to show the younger generation through patriotism, love of country and community involvement and service.

At Wreaths Across America we are committed to teaching younger generations about the value of their freedoms and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect them. Our convoy to Arlington stops at many schools along the way. We offer learning tools and opportunities for schools, scouts and other youth groups to participate in our efforts. But most importantly, we share the names and stories of those who have served and sacrificed for all of us so that their memory lives on.

As Americans it is our duty to ensure the next generation stays connected to our past so that the future can be preserved, and defended.

Wishing everyone a positive and safe school year!

With gratitude,
Karen Worcester

As Maine Flag Ladies Retire, Wreaths Across America Takes the Helm

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Elaine Greene, inspired by the images and emotions of the unfolding events, felt compelled to do something.

She took an American flag and headed to Main St. in Freeport, Maine. As she raised and waved the flag, passersby waved and honked. A perfect display of unity and patriotism needed and shared. This act gave way to a pledge. Elaine vowed to return every Tuesday for a year. The next week, she was joined by JoAnn Miller and Carmen Footer. That year turned into 18 without a Tuesday missed.

On Sept. 11, 2019, The Freeport Flag Ladies will make their last trip to Main St. The following Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, at 9 am, Wreaths Across America, Worcester Resources and the community of Columbia Falls, Maine, will commit to carry on the mission of the Freeport Flag Ladies and raise the American flag every week.

Please join us in person, and live on Facebook as we carry on this tradition with respect and honor.

Mission Matters Newsletter from Wreaths Across America – July 2019

A newsletter from the Wreaths Across America organization.


Click to view this email online.
Thank you to all who have shared your stories this month as part of #GivingInJuly. Seeing how you are giving back in your own communities through helping to Remember, Honor and Teach is truly what made my family want to start Wreaths Across America to begin with.

Daily, I am reminded of the impact this mission has on so many people, Americans coming together from all backgrounds to remember a stranger’s loved one. From a Gold Star mom finding peace in knowing someone came to visit her child and said their name, to seeing a Veteran brought to tears as we welcome them home 50 years later. The wreath is the catalyst to help us do this. It bring communities together and helps people put aside their differences for a brief time to focus on all that is good.

I will forever be grateful to play a small part in this incredibly humbling journey that is Wreaths Across America, and look forward to hearing your stories and bringing more people together in this great country.

Karen Worcester

Wreaths Across America Kicks Off Annual Giving in July. Mission Matters – June 2019

An item from the Wreaths Across America organization.


Click to view this email online.
Giving in July for Wreaths Across America is an idea that reminds us to remember and honor our country’s veterans each and every day of the year, not just in December. Like Christmas in July, thinking about the holidays during the summer months provides us with the perfect opportunity to encourage others to get involved early and support not only our mission, but other groups in their communities playing a part to Remember, Honor and Teach.

Our veterans and our current military serve and protect us 365 days a year, providing us with freedoms that we enjoy as citizens every day in this country. More details about this year’s Giving in July effort can be read below. Thank you for your support of the mission year-round.

Remember – Honor – Teach
