Wreaths Across America is a non-profit that performs wreath laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery as well as thousands of other veterans' cemeteries every December. The motto of the organization is, "Remember, Honor, Teach".

Every year Americans watch as trucks filled with balsam wreaths make their way across our country to be laid during solemn ceremonies at the graves of our fallen service members. Wreaths Across America is a moving reminder of the sacrifice that freedom requires. Join the Stem to Stone Hybrid Live/ Virtual 5K Race in Columbia Falls, Maine on Saturday July 18th. You can run in person following CDC recommendations or participate virtually. Get details here.

Some celebrate "Christmas in July", but non-profits are promoting "Giving in July" to support their important programs. Wreaths Across America usually has a weekend-long fundraising event in Columbia Falls, Maine called " Rally in the Valley". Because of the pandemic, WWA is broadcasting a "Giving in July" concert on their official WWA Facebook page on Sunday, July 18th at 7 p.m.. This family friendly concert will feature patriotic musicians and a message from Operation Red Wing lone survivor, retired United States Navy Seal, Marcus Luttrell.
