Today is Memorial Day – and Wreaths Across America wants to make sure we all know the difference!




And it’s never too early to sponsor a wreath for a fallen soldier’s grave during the Christmas holiday season!


Memorial Day may herald the start of summer vacations for many, but donations are already being accepted for the 2022 National Wreaths Across America Day, which is scheduled for Saturday, December 17th, 2022.


From their website:


“Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.”



Who We Remember:


“From the Revolutionary War to present day conflicts, our veterans are devoted sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers. They come from all backgrounds in life to place those lives on the line for our freedoms. There are millions of individual stories to tell. Get to know them by viewing the 4,760 recent posts made by our supporters or sponsor a wreath in honor of or in memory of an American hero.”
