Our Mission


Our mission isn't over once December ends.

We Remember, Honor, Teach all year long.

While coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies is a big part of what we do, our mission is carried out throughout the year. Here's how.

Each day of the year is an opportunity to show our respect in the year-round mission to honor those who serve and sacrifice. Every wreath placed becomes a catalyst for bringing together different generations of Americans in one mission of remembrance and appreciation.
