Wreaths Go Mobile For Education Exhibit

Wreaths Across America (WAA) has wrapped up another successful Wreaths Across America Day on Dec. 17, 2022, by coordinating 596 truckloads of wreaths to all 50 states and beyond, delivering to 3,702 locations a total of 2.7 million sponsored veterans’ wreaths. Although the organization’s most recognizable effort has now passed, the work to recognize our nation’s veterans never ends and WAA is proud to announce that its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE) will make several 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 Remember the fallen, Honor those who have served and their families, and Teach the next generation the value of freedom,” said Karen Worcester, Executive Director. “The Mobile Education Exhibit provides the unique opportunity for communities to come together and share the stories of those who served and sacrificed. Through our partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, the Exhibit also serves as an official ‘Welcome Home’ location for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans.”

The MEE achieves this goal by bringing the local community, veterans, active-duty military 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 it be for a parade, a school-related or veterans’ organization, or a public or private event, visit to make a request.

Anyone can sponsor a veteran’s wreath anytime for $15 at Each sponsorship goes toward a live, balsam wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero as the organization prepares to honor all veterans laid to rest on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2023, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day next year.

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