REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.
Welcome to Honor and Remember's Wreaths Across America Page.
The Mission is to Honor and Remember every American fallen service member and recognize the enduring sacrifice of every family.
The organization pays tribute to all military lives lost, not only while serving on active duty but also as a result of serving. Military deaths in all wars or conflicts and all branches of service from our nation’s inception are recognized.
The primary vehicle for perpetual recognition is a specific and dedicated symbol of remembrance created by this organization: the Honor and Remember Flag, which is intended to fly continuously as a tangible and visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms.
To learn more about our flag and programs please visit www.honorandremember.org. Run for the Fallen is a national initiative currently underway for Honor and Remember, you can follow along on social media and see the route on our website.
