The mission to remember, honor and teach is mobile, and we hope you let us know when you see it in your community!

Wreaths Across America's traveling education exhibit is making its debut to the public at the Mid America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky and then it's on the road again to the next destination.

Renee Worcester with the Wreaths Across America Corporate Partnership Program says the traveling exhibit is possible through a donation to the organization from Chevrolet. Renee says while Chevrolet made the vehicle and trailer possible many others "locally" have played a role contributing to the rolling exhibit and getting it ready for the road.

Caron Signs, in Hermon, Maine beautifully wrapped the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD pickup truck, and the 48-foot trailer in Wreaths Across America themed images designed by Mike Worcester.

"It's a marvel to see on the outside and inside," Renee explains. "It has slideouts with two exterior televisions, a movie theatre inside and an area where you can learn about the organization and sign up to be a volunteer for Wreaths Across America. We want to teach everyone about the mission to remember, honor and teach, and we can use the traveling exhibit for different events across the country."

The traveling education exhibit will be on the road for the upcoming truck shows, but it will also be available for requests from schools, military organizations, Gold Star family events, and Wreaths Across America's location and fundraising coordinator's special events as time and proximity allow.

"Now that it's unveiled I'm not sure it's going to make it back to Maine," Renee exclaims enthusiastically. "I really don't see it stopping, and we want people to tell us where they see it. Take pictures and videos when you check it out and share them with us on social media."

Be sure to say hello and give a thumbs up to the retired owner of Hampton Roads, Don Queeney! Don has been instrumental in logistics getting the mobile unit ready and he's volunteering his time to drive it to the various locations that have been put on the exhibit's schedule so far.
