Trucking industry helps Wreaths Across America lay 1.2 million wreaths at vets’ graves
More than 150 trucking companies helped transport more than 1.2 million wreaths across the nation this year for the annual Wreaths Across America event, National Wreaths Across America Day, on Dec. 17.
Each year, volunteers lay wreaths on grave sites of American military veterans at veteran cemeteries across the U.S. for the event. The largest convoy of trucks for the event delivers more than 200,000 wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery.
Some fleets that participated this year include UPS Freight, Schneider National, J.B. Hunt, Estes Express Lines, Prime Inc., and more.
Below are some photos from the Truckload Carriers Association, who participated in the event at Arlington, as well as some Tweets from events across the country.
About Wreaths Across America | Wreaths Across America started as a grass-roots effort to remember those willing to serve and sacrifice. But each year we see an increasing number of corporate and industry donors who step up to help us honor more veterans, at Arlington National Cemetery and in over 1,100 local communities nationwide. Recognizing the sacrifices made by our military families is good for business, and many of our corporate supporters also have made pledges to hire our veterans and keep America strong.
