Wreaths Across America Follow Up
Volunteers in the trucking industry completed this year’s Wreaths Across America project this weekend, returning to Arlington Cemetery to clear the wreaths left during the holidays at veterans’ gravesites.
“Wreaths Across America has been a wonderful opportunity for the industry to come together and spread joy during the holiday season,” says Lisa Kardell, Director of Public Affairs for Waste Management, Inc. one of the participants in the clean up. “We are honored to participate in this event and to be able to help maintain the cemetery in remembrance of our fallen soldiers.”
Wreaths Across America began the tradition of placing wreaths at Arlington Cemetery in 1992. Now hundreds of truckers volunteer to deliver wreaths to Arlington and other military cemeteries.
