Wreaths Across America

Lieutenant General John F. Mulholland, Jr., USASOC

During this time of gift exchanging and holiday gatherings, IMG 0351As you can imagine, the mission of this organization is near and dear to my heart, as the spouse of a service member and as a service member myself.  Circumstances have prevented me from participating since I’ve been here in Colorado, but I found a wonderful way to contribute this year.  WAA is offering a chance for you to Help Cover Arlington, and it’s not too late!  There are tons of sponsorship options, including the Military Tribute Patriot Pair, which I jumped all over.  For $34.50, you can donate a wreath and receive one of your own, with an American flag and the service flag of your choice!  This isn’t the thin variety of wreaths you find at your local home improvement store or grocery store – this thing is plush.  Our new home is proudly sporting a gorgeous Air Force wreath, and I love that one will be decorating the grave of a veteran at Pacific View because of our purchase. 

Wreaths Across America Day is this Saturday, December 15th.  If you aren’t able to donate, consider going out to a participating cemetery this weekend.  Remember.  Honor.  Teach.
