The non-profit organization places wreaths on the graves of soldiers to recognize U.S. military veterans that have preserved America’s freedom. It’s taking place December 13th, 2014. Here is a look at the organization and what to expect in Lynn Haven.

The Mission of Wreath Across America

The mission of the organization is to remember, honor and teach by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on a Saturday in December at Arlington and other veterans’ cemeteries around the 50 states.  

In addition, the cause plans a week of events to include ceremonies at State Houses, international veteran’s tributes and a week-long Veteran’s Parade between Virginia and Maine in which stops are made to spread the message of the fallen heroes. This parade also teaches kids about the veterans and the sacrifice made for families to preserve freedom.

Thousands of volunteers help with the week of events to make them possible by organizing local ceremonies, raising funds and sponsoring wreaths. Volunteer truckers, corporate donors and wreath sponsors help with the cost of this program.

Wreath Across America in Lynn Haven, Florida

Lynn Haven residents can participate in Wreaths Across America this December. The city of Lynn Haven is partnering with Members of Civil Air Patrol’s Tyndall, Panama Composite No. 435 and Wreaths Across America to organize the event in the city. In order to properly recognize the fallen heroes, these organizations will be placing wreaths on graves this holiday season.

They are asking the city to help support the program by purchasing wreaths online. You can do this by going to www.wreathsacrossamerica.org and clicking on “sponsor locally.” From there, click on “find a fundraising group” and enter “FL0073 Tyndall-Panama Composite Squadron CAP SER-FL-435. You can click on “Donate” from there and proceed to the checkout page.

With many fallen heroes that have no family to remember them, this mission to place wreaths on the graves takes a moment to recognize the individual.
