For our First Noel Letters Countdown Day 4, on this Saturday morning – we are recognizing the 25th Anniversary of National Wreaths Across America Day 2016.

“Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.”

Below is a YouTube from last Saturday, December 10th with #ChevySalutes Wreaths Across America and Our Military at the Army-Navy Game. 

If you are new to reading my blog, the first time I wrote about Wreaths Across America here was in my blog post entitled: At Freedom’s price — Wreaths Across America on July 5, 2015; it was followed up with Christmas in July — Wreaths Across America on July 15, 2015.   My most recent mention of them was last month in my #GivingTuesday November 29, 2016, blog post.  All of these links are listed at the bottom of today’s blog post.

Thank you to the WAA Volunteers and my dear friend Ellen (one of My Three Muses) for their dedication and ongoing volunteer efforts who are participating with the Wreaths Across America events today.

Join me tomorrow for my Sunday blog post on what will be Day 5 of First Noel Letters Countdown Series. And yes, Christmas Eve is one week from today!  

Anchors Aweigh,
