Wreaths Across America receives no government funding to support operations. Motivated and dedicated patriots across the country and at locations overseas power the Maine-based nonprofit organization. The mission to remember, honor, and teach is carried out daily by millions of citizens who care deeply for those who have served our nation in the armed forces, and their families. Some of these remarkable individuals are veterans themselves or come from military families while others are driven by a deep sense of patriotism and community service. 

Placing fresh, hand-made balsam remembrance wreaths on the headstones of veterans across the country in December requires tremendous logistics and unyielding support from the trucking industry.

Wreaths Across America shows its gratitude and appreciation for all those involved in transporting America's respect with "Trucking Tributes." These stories will introduce you to the men and women of the industry who make the mission possible.

That's right! Wreaths Across America is expanding as more and more patriotic citizens across this great nation remember fallen hometown heroes, honor those who serve and their families, and teach younger generations the value of freedom. They do that by sponsoring fresh balsam fir remembrance wreaths for placement at cemeteries and other memorials on National Wreaths Across America Day, Saturday, December 16, 2017.

Last year, over 1.2 million wreaths were transported from Columbia Falls, Maine to Arlington National Cemetery and over 1,300 other participating locations. Those truckloads of America's respect were hauled by members of our Honor Fleet, and now you can join that team of professional drivers.

This year its estimated as many as 1.6 million wreaths will need to delivered to close as many as 1,300 participating locations! Can you and your company help?

To date, more than 125 loads are still open and will need to be filled by the first week of December. To view the full list of loads still open please visit http://www.waatrucking.com/open-loads/

We've been showcasing the remarkable work done by our trucking partners in our "Trucking Tributes" series. The stories are filled with pride and emotion as companies, and their drivers share their experiences supporting the wreath-laying mission. We'd like to feature your volunteer efforts too!
