This Merchant Marine Patriot Pair includes sponsorship of one standard 24" Remembrance Wreath that will be placed on Wreaths Across America Day and one matching wreath proudly displaying both an American flag and an official Flag of the United States Merchant Marine that will be sent to the address of your choice. They’re a great option if you’re looking to participate on Wreaths Across America Day and remember the service of a veteran in your family, honor the sacrifice of a military family you know or teach others about the Wreaths Across America mission at a business or at home!
What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 1,200 locations nationwide this year on Wreaths Across America Day. It’s a day that’s been set aside to lay wreaths at the places where we remember, honor and teach about our veterans: cemeteries, monuments, parks… Anywhere we can pay tribute to their sacrifices.
We can’t do that without your support, though. Your sponsorship will ensure that a wreath is hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a fallen hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten.
So, what does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you have the opportunity to join a grateful nation in saying “thank you” to our veterans.
