Honoring Our Fallen Heroes:
Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization that's been on a year-round mission since 2007: to remember, honor and teach. The heartfelt tradition of placing veterans’ wreaths for our fallen began at Arlington National Cemetery in 1992 as a simple gesture of thanks and has since grown to over 4,000 participating locations nationwide. This year, National Wreaths Across America Day will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2023, when more than two million volunteers and supporters will gather to Remember, Honor and Teach through wreath laying ceremonies in all 50 states, at sea and abroad.
Each November and December—one of the busiest periods of the year for the transportation sector—the Wreaths Across America mission brings transportation companies and drivers together in an effort of unparalleled unity. With a positive, “can-do” work ethic, trucking professionals make it possible for Americans to honor millions of veterans. In 2023, more than 650 truckloads of live balsam veterans’ wreaths will need to be delivered, providing a unique logistics challenge and an opportunity for the trucking community to give back while gaining valuable benefits.
