Wreaths Across America – John E. Jacobs American Legion Post 68, Leland

While we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, our servicemen and women sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms. And in many homes across the U.S., there is an empty seat every day for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. That is why our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach lasts all year long, far beyond the single day in December when we coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies. Throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works in a number of ways to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget. We Remember and Honor our veterans and Teach the next generation to do the same.

“To be killed in war is not the worst that can happen. To be lost is not the worst that can happen… to be forgotten is the worst.”

— Pierre Claeyssens (1909-2003)
