REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the PSSDAR Junior Membership's Wreaths Across America Page.
On December 18th, Pennsylvania Juniors and members will be helping across Pennsylvania to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring remembrance wreaths, volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
Thank you so much for supporting the PSSDAR Junior Membership Service Project and Wreaths Across America!
