Mark Loewenberg PA 561-214-0370: Wreaths Across America Day Saturday 12/12/15 - Remembering Our Heros

Wreaths Across America Day Saturday 12/12/15 - Remembering Our Heros

Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath laying ceremonies each December at veterans' cemeteries across the nation.  This year at our local South Florida National Cemetery ceremony takes place at 11:30am on 12/12.  The public and the relatives of those buried and interred are invited to come out and lay wreaths at the graves of our national heros.

A very special day is the day before when the wreaths arrive from Maine by way of motorcycle escort. The wreaths are transported by Walmart to the cemeteries.  Then volunteers unbox thousands of wreaths and stack them so they are ready for the next day's ceremony.

Today at South Florida National Cemetery, the wreaths arrived around 1040 by police escort then about 100 volunteers unboxed and stacked wreaths and were done in just a few hours.

This is one of my annual privileges I get the honor of participating in and it is truly special as a remembrance of my son Adrian who is laid to rest there, a true hero in my eyes and heart.

They do take donations and if you would like to help you can visit:

Mark- I was hoping you would write about this.  It is the very least any of us could do to honor those who have served our country. Thinking of you.

Hi Mark.  This is such a wonderful program.  The head of it has to reach into his pocket to fund the program.

Smiles and tears from me too this morning Mark.  What a wonderful honor to be able to place a wreath on your son Adrian's grave.  Beautiful tribute to all veterans.
