Escort of Wreaths
“For those had the opportunity to participate in the escort of wreaths over the years, it is really an experience of a lifetime,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, WAA. “Plus, the way we and the mission are always welcoming into communities, with flags waving and thus streets lining with children and veterans, it is something we always wish every American could, in fact, witness. This year, we are hoping that supporters will, in fact, once again join us in lining the roadways safely and thus welcome the mission into their communities.”
