National Wreaths Across America is an event in December each year dedicated to remembering the sacrifices veterans have made in wars since the American Revolution.Wreaths Across America (WAA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Post 178 WAA coordinates the recruiting of volunteers to assist in distributing and laying wreaths on each grave at D/FW National Cemetery.
Wreaths Across America’s mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach. WAA strives to remember our fallen heroes, the day honors those that served, and it teaches our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedom.
Each year Post 178 participates in WAA at D/FW National Cemetery by purchasing wreaths, distributing cases of wreaths, attending the Saturday ceremony, and laying wreaths on the graves.
Post 178’s namesake, Peter J Courcy, is laid to rest at D/FW National Cemetery and we gather near his gravesite each year to remember his and his family’s sacrifice for our freedom.
