Wreaths Across America looks different this year due to COVID-19, but its impact is still just as strong. WAA Board Member and Location Coordinator Randy Lewer explains the changes at Florida National Cemetery to make sure wreaths are placed on veterans’ graves.
Randy Lewer: WAA
We’re receiving about 21,000 wreaths this year, and what we’ve done is, we’re not having a ceremony like we traditionally do, and we will be doing our wreath handout, in a drive-thru manner.
And we’ll be able to go ahead and get these, get the wreaths passed out to everybody as they drive into the cemetery, and they can place their wreaths anywhere in the cemetery to remember our fallen veterans.
Wreaths Across America is the one thing that can bring everybody together, and to go ahead and just remember our fallen veterans and all the sacrifices our veterans make on a daily basis, to preserve our freedoms.
