Truckers play important role in Wreaths Across America


The annual Wreaths Across America convoy is en route to Arlington National Cemetery this week, where it will deliver thousands of wreaths which will be placed on each veterans’ grave.

The convoy will make stops at schools and different ceremonies along the way to spread the non-profit’s mission to “Remember, Honor, Teach” about the service of U.S. veterans and their families.

The convoy left Sunday, Dec. 10 in Maine and will end Friday, Dec. 15 in Arlington. National Wreaths Across America Day is this Saturday, Dec. 16 when volunteers will place remembrance wreaths on the graves of veterans at Arlington National Cemetery and other cemeteries across the U.S. and in Europe.

Wreaths Across America has launched a radio channel with updates and interviews from this year’s convoy to Arlington.
