“We encourage every volunteer who places a wreath on a veteran’s grave to say that veteran’s name aloud and take a moment to thank them for their service to our country. It’s a small act that goes a long way toward keeping the memory of our veterans alive. We are not here to “decorate graves.” We’re here to remember not their deaths, but their lives.” – Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America
