John A. Hollett, SSG USAF 53-57
Uncle John inspired me to join the Service. When he passed unexpectedly in early 2001 I was asked to present the flag to my Aunt. At the time it was the most difficult and yet the most priviledged event of my military career. Rest peacefully Uncle John!
cloud Memory for Albert Cryder, Honored by Hilldale Cemetery
My Dad, Albert Cryder, was a US veteran and a true patriot. He flew the American Flag outside our home in Sayre Pennsylvania for many many years. He was honored by our town for being a patriot for doing so. Thanks Dad for being such a dedicated patriotic American, you are missed. Alice Berretta (daughter)

What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you are supporting a yearlong mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom. Your sponsorship will support the new and existing programs developed to share the mission. And, it will place a wreath to honor an American hero at one of more than 3,700 participating locations this year on National Wreaths Across America Day – a day set aside to lay gathers as Americans with the same goal.
We can’t do that without your support, though. Your sponsorship will ensure a hand-crafted wreath of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service, and sacrifice is never forgotten.
So, what does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to those who stepped up to serve.
*Please Note: Specific locations designated as "ceremonial-only" accept a limited number of sponsorships. Any additional sponsorships received beyond those used for the ceremony will be distributed to other locations.
