REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to the Team Rubicon - Region II (NY0245 )'s Wreaths Across America Page.

Doing Good Twice: Midwest Honor Flight, Sioux Center, IA
Each sponsored wreath helps to ensure a veteran has a wreath on their grave in remembrance and dedication once they pass, but that extra $5 means a veteran’s t-shirt or meal on the Honor Flight is covered at no cost to them....
