Wreaths become mobile for the educational exhibition

Wreaths Across America (WAA) completed another successful Wreaths Across America Day on December 17, 2022 by coordinating 596 truckloads of wreaths to all 50 states and beyond and delivering a total of 2.7 million sponsored Veteran’s Wreaths to 3,702 locations. Although the organization’s best-known effort is now over, the work of recognizing our nation’s veterans is never-ending, and WAA is proud to announce that its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) will make multiple stops in California over the next three months, to honor those who served and welcome home Vietnam veterans.

“The mission of Wreaths Across America is to commemorate the fallen, honor those who served and their families, and teach the next generation the value of freedom,” said Karen Worcester, Executive Director. “The mobile educational exhibit offers a unique opportunity for communities to come together and share the stories of those who have served and sacrificed. Through our partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, the exhibit also serves as an official “Welcome Home” place for our nation’s Vietnam veterans.”

The MEE achieves this goal by bringing the local community, veterans, active-duty military personnel and their families together through interactive exhibits, short films and shared stories. The exhibit serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service and sacrifice of veterans.

To host the MEE in your community, whether for a parade, school-related or veteran organization, or public or private event, visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/mee to make an inquiry.

Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, begun in 1992 by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester. The organization’s mission—Remember, Honor, Teach—continues in part by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December in Arlington and at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.
