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. The National Wreaths Across America Day will be observed on December 18, 2021.
Please consider donating wreaths. You can donate until December 1st. One wreath can be purchased for $15.00. When two wreaths are purchased for $30.00, the DFW National Cemetery will receive a third one free. Purchase online at Chris and Mary Bush’s fundraising website at: HonorDFW.com.
Post 178 WAA coordinates the recruiting of volunteers to assist in distribution and placement of wreaths on each grave at D/FW National Cemetery. On Friday, December 17, 2021, trucks with the cases of wreaths will arrive early morning. Distribution of the cases of wreaths will begin at 8:30 A.M. and end at noon. Please let me know at Amer.firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1 if you will be able to assist with the distribution of the cases of wreaths. We will meet at the Walmart (FM 423 & Stonebrook Blvd. in Frisco) on Friday, December 17th at 7:45 A.M. to depart at 8:00A.M. to the DFW National Cemetery located at 2000 Mountain Creek Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75211. Delbert Parsons will be coordinating the carpooling.
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.
