REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
On Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019, Freightliner will host a fundraising reception in support of Wreaths Across America and the Special Forces Charitable Trust. The event will be held at the historic George Washington Masonic National Memorial located in Alexandria, Va., from 6 - 9 pm.
Special guests include FOX & Friends Weekend Host and decorated combat veteran Pete Hegseth, Founder of Wreaths Across America Morrill Worcester, and many veterans and active military.
By sponsoring wreaths here, you are helping to ensure all those laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery receive a veteran's wreath this December 14 - National Wreaths Across America Day. With each $15 wreath sponsorship, a wreath will be placed and $5 will be donated to the Special Forces Charitable Trust whose mission it is to provide meaningful and sustainable support to the Families of our Green Berets. The SFCT supports timely, innovative, and comprehensive programs and services designed to enhance the well-being and health of both the Special Forces Soldier and his Family.
Thank you so much for your contribution to Wreaths Across America and Special Forces Charitable Trust!
