Welcome to Wreaths Across America – Houston
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 annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery started in 1992 is now performed around the country.
Wreath Day 2015
What a fantastic day, even with the less than perfect weather as we were able to honor over 58,000 of our fallen heroes with a wreath. There were more people at the cemetery than we have ever had before paying their respects and simply saying thank you to those that served. We were able to watch as kids connected and thanked countless veterans. Families and spouses were able to see that they are not alone in their loss.
And there is a cemetery beaming in spectacular beauty in an ocean of wreaths as far as you can see. Please take the time to come out a visit while the wreaths are out so you can experience the site for yourself. Thank you to all of the individuals, companies, groups, and corporations that have once again stepped up to make it happen. Thank you to the WAA-H Board of Directors that invest so much time and energy throughout the year to bring it all together so well.
