Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America 1

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 distribution and placement of wreaths on each grave at D/FW National Cemetery. The DFW National Cemetery is located at 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, Texas 75236.

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.

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.

The National Wreaths Across America Day will be observed on December 18, 2021.
