|We will soon introduce a resolution designating December 16, 2017, as “Wreaths Across America Day” in Pennsylvania.
The Wreaths Across America project began in 1992, and is now an annual tradition where Maine balsam fir remembrance wreaths are placed on the graves of the fallen heroes buried at Arlington National Cemetery. It's aim is simple - remembering the fallen heroes of the United States; honoring those who serve; and reminding the people of the United States about the sacrifices made by soldiers to preserve our freedoms in the United States. Last year - in addition to Arlington - there were 1,200,000 wreaths placed at 1,226 locations nationwide as a part of Wreaths Across America.
While the official day will be December 16th, there will be a special service in the Main Rotunda of the Capitol on Monday, December 11th at 12:00 p.m. You are welcome to join us at this event. In the meantime, please join us in cosponsoring this resolution in support of our fallen heroes.
