It’s true! Following are some of the highlights with links to hear the stories captured during these important events.

On March 25, 2023, Wreaths Across America Radio was front and center at the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s Citizen Honor Awards.

In May of 2023, Wreaths Across America Radio took on one of its most significant events in the heart of Washington, DC: Welcome Home!
