Welcome to the Michigan Trucking Association's Wreaths Across America Virtual Convoy Page!
Through this effort, we will be working to fill (virtually) one trailer load of sponsored veterans’ wreaths to send to Arlington National Cemetery this December. This is approximately 5,000 wreaths that will be laid on the final resting place of servicemembers from our state.
On December 16, 2023 at 12:00 pm, Michigan Trucking Association will be helping Wreaths Across America to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying veterans' wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.
Please help us honor and remember as many fallen heroes as possible by sponsoring a wreath(s), volunteering on Wreaths Day, or inviting your family and friends to attend with you.
Thank you so much for supporting the Michigan Trucking Association and Wreaths Across America!
