REMEMBER our fallen U.S. veterans.
HONOR those who serve.
TEACH your children the value of freedom.
Wreaths Across America's mission is to Remember, Honor and Teach. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying ceremonies are coordinated at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.
We have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.
In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Last year Wenches with Winches and Utah Jeep Crew combined efforts and helped Fort Douglas ensure that all 1400 soldiers were REMEMBERED and HONORED. Over 36 Jeeps escorted the procession from the Fort Douglas Post Theatre Ceremony to the Fort Douglas Cemetery. In addition to this, W3 was able to go to the Salt Lake City Cemetery and honor some soldiers there with wreaths to include a soldier that was being buried that day.
This year W3 is continuing to support Wreaths Across America and the Fort Douglas Cemetery so that all Soldiers are REMEMBERED and HONORED. It is now our turn to TEACH the community about this opportunity.
There will be more information coming soon about the day of the event, but right now the biggest thing you can do is to help Fort Douglas get 1400 wreaths sponsored. The easiest way is through the Fort Douglas Wreaths Across America website.
