Andrea Shea-King and Mark Vance of Constitutional Public Radio interviewed a man by the name of Morrill Worcester on their program not too long ago. Now I’m sure you probably have not heard his name before, but you will recognize his work. Mr. Worcester and his company, the Worcester Wreath Company, donate and ship more than 5,000 wreaths which decorate the graves of our fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery and they have been doing this for 15 years now.
This year the Worcester Wreath Company is enlisting the help of the Civil Air Patrol to have a memorial wreath laying ceremony which will encompass 230 State and National Cemetaries and Veteran’s Memorial Monuments. Please visit their site Wreaths Across America to find out the details. You may be able to be a part of this.
Morrill Worcester – President of Worcester Wreath Company explains his desire to develop the Wreaths Across America project:
“Our goal is to expand the recognition of those who serve our country, both past, present, and future, as well as their families who deserve our support. Without the sacrifices of our veterans, there would be no opportunity to enjoy the freedoms, the life we live today.”
Worcester Wreath invites you to attend the annual wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery, or in your local area.
Thursday, December 14th, 2006 – More details coming soon!
The list of locations is growing each day and our goal with Civil Air Patrol is to involve every State and National cemetery, Veterans Monument and Memorial across the country.
Note: If you are not able to attend, please participate by taking a moment of silence at the noon hour on December 14th, to reflect on the sacrifices made and freely given, by those who will not be home for the holidays.
