REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to IN0127 - Heritage Environmental Services's Wreaths Across America Page. 

In December of 2023, Heritage Transport will be sending two trucks to Maine to participate with the WAA Honor Fleet.  Our drivers will pick up full loads of wreaths and transport one to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery to Joliet, IL (near Chicago). The delivery location for our second truck is yet to be determined, but we are hopeful to deliver to a location where our employees volunteer.      

Our company is additionally encouraging the sponsorship of wreaths and eventually hope to grow this fundraising effort to cover the costs of the wreaths we transport!  Our employees will be participating in wreath laying near their homes in at least 6 locations. 

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 IN0127 - Heritage Environmental Services and Wreaths Across America!
