How Will You Remember, Honor and Teach?
As Wreaths Across America’s 21-Day Salute comes to a close, we’d like to extend our gratitude to all of the individuals who have shared their personal stories with us over the last three weeks and to everyone who continues to support our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.
The day’s leading up to Wreaths Across America Day will be full of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, but we encourage you to take pause each day to reflect on those who will be unable to share this time with the ones they love. There will be empty chairs at the Thanksgiving table this year and each one is a reminder of the sacrifices made by so many to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. Tomorrow, as you look around your own table and give thanks for the family and friends in your life, we ask that you take a moment to REMEMBER those who are unable to be with their loved ones this holiday season, HONOR their memory and TEACH your own children the value of freedom.
As we enter into this season of giving, we ask you: How will you remember, honor and teach?
Whether it’s through volunteering to lay wreaths on the headstones of our fallen heroes, sponsoring a wreath so that no one will be forgotten, or sending a gift of thanks to a military family or veteran, please know your support is so appreciated by the families and veterans you are supporting.
