Saturday, December 17th marked the 31st annual National Wreaths Across America day.
Each holiday season, national nonprofit, Wreaths Across America accepts donations for fresh Christmas wreaths and places them on the memorial sites of fallen veterans across the country. The wreaths honor a hero’s memory and sacrifices.
To transport the wreaths from Columbia, Maine (where the wreaths are grown) to 3,400 wreath-laying ceremonies in all 50 states, WAA relies on the Honor Fleet.
In our second year as a carrier of the Honor Fleet, Continental Express was proud to deliver three loads of wreaths tothe Ohio Western Reserve Nation Cemetery in Seville, Ohio, Ottawa Hills Memorial Park in Toledo, Ohio, and Woodside Cemetery and Arboretum in Middletown, Ohio.
OTR driver and US Army Veteran Frank Larger delivered the wreaths.
Continental Express is proud to be a member of the Honor Fleet and to support the mission of WAA. Withoutthe brave efforts of our country’s servicemen and women, we would not be able to enjoy the freedoms we have, or celebrate the holidays.
