Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice. The Wreaths Across America mission is to “Remember, Honor, and Teach”.
The Wreaths Across America story began over 20 years ago when Worcester Wreath Company (a for-profit commercial business from Harrington, Maine) began a tradition of placing wreaths on the headstones of our Nation’s fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery.
Until 2007, Houston National Cemetery (HNC) did not receive live wreaths for all burial sites, due to lack of funding.
Houston, with the assistance of Clements NJROTC will show the nation how we honor our fallen soldiers, by placing a wreath on grave sites at the Houston National Cemetery. Although WAA has not yet reached the goal for all the sites at Houston National Cemetery, each year they make a huge step for Houston as we honor our fallen heroes.
