The Motto of Wreaths Across America (WAA) is REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH. REMEMBER our veterans that served and are serving America, HONOR the fallen veterans, and TEACH our youth about the service and sacrifice of our veterans and families.
Thank you for your service to the Peter J Courcy Post 178 and the DFW National Cemetery.
On October 26th, National Day of the Deployed annually honors the United States military personnel deployed around the globe. The designation recognizes all the brave military personnel who have been deployed, are sacrificing, or have sacrificed their lives to defend our country. It also acknowledges their families who are separated from them during deployment and the sacrifices they make to afford their family members to serve our country.
Many deployed troops leave their families behind to serve their country. They make the greatest sacrifices to keep their country secure. A few ways to recognize their services include:
Donate to a military organization like The American Legion
Send care packages
Attend ceremonies honoring the military
Volunteer your time and services to local military organizations
If you know a military family, ask what support they need
Offer to support military personnel who have no family
In an effort to overcome British sea control, the Continental Congress established the Continental Navy, which later, on October 13, 1775, became the United States Navy. When the infant Navy was first formed, it consisted of just two armed vessels – tasked with disrupting munition ships supplying the British Army in America. Yet over the past nearly two and one-half centuries, our Navy has grown to become the largest, most advanced, and most lethal fighting force the world has ever known.
