Retiring of wreaths on the 27th was accomplished in record time. A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped.
2018 is here and we are already receiving wreath orders for WAA Day on Dec 15th 2018. Please direct your friends and relatives to this website (wreaths-denver.org). Sometime shortly we will have the ability to take orders on this site directly using credit, debit cards or e-checks. This will ease the frustrations some sponsors have had in the past going to WAA National website. Sponsors will still need to make Grave Specific requests separately on this website.
2018 GOAL 50,000 Wreaths
The Wreaths Across America mission: Remember, Honor, Teach. This is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on a specified Saturday in December at Fort Logan, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. WAA organizes a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia. The parade stops along the way to spread the message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
This week of events is made possible by thousands of volunteers who organize local ceremonies, raise funds to sponsor wreaths, and participate in the events. The cost of our programs is paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors, and volunteer professional truck drivers.
Ft Logan Wreaths Across America Mission Statement
