Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies across the country each year to honor fallen veterans during the holiday season. Volunteers from coast to coast sponsor and participate in the ceremonies by traveling to over 2,500 cemeteries across the country and laying garland wreaths on each veteran’s grave—from those who served in the Revolutionary War to present-day conflicts.
Withum sponsored wreaths for 22 sites in eight states and Puerto Rico, and Withum team members volunteered to place wreaths at over a dozen locations, including Arlington National Cemetery.NJ-based team members also welcomed the Wreaths Across America convoy at the New Jersey Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Holmdel, NJ,on its route from Columbia Falls, ME,to the Arlington National Cemetery.
Withum is proud to join Wreaths Across America in its mission to Remember, Honor and Teach.We are glad for the opportunity to promote a greater understanding of the sacrifices made by veterans during the holiday season, We hope that this gesture brings comfort to families missing their lovedones over the holidays.
