The holidays are the perfect time to give back to your community and get involved. This holiday season FTD is teaming up with Wreaths Across America to honor those who served in the U.S. military. Wreaths Across America’s mission is to remember the fallen, honor those who serve, and teach future generations about the sacrifices made to preserve our freedoms. This year they are honoring the 150th anniversary of Arlington National Cemetery, and their goal this year is to get 230,000 wreaths to cover all the sections of Arlington.
What is special about Wreaths Across America? This program honors an American hero and symbolizes what a veteran means. The chart below represents the ten qualities of a veteran that compares to the ten balsam bouquets of the wreath.
