Locally, volunteers supporting Wreaths Across America at Mt. Zion have been working hard to ensure that the 250 service members buried there will indeed be honored for first time this year with the placement of live, balsam veterans’ wreaths as part of National Wreaths Across America Day 2020.

“It is important that during challenging times we all take a moment to remember those who have met and overcome challenges – like our nation’s military and their families – and show unity in our American spirit while we work together in an effort to march forward in the face of what seems to be insurmountable odds,” said Karen Worcester, executive director of Wreaths Across America. “We are so grateful to the good people of this great nation for participating in the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.”

National Wreaths Across America Day is a free, non-political event, open to all people. Wreaths Across America is the non-profit organization best known for placing veterans’ wreaths on the headstones of our nation’s fallen at Arlington National Cemetery. However, the organization, in total, places more than 2.2 million sponsored wreaths at over 2200 participating locations nationwide.
