This Merchant Marine Patriot Pair includes sponsorship of one standard 22" 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 are supporting a yearlong mission to Remember the fallen, Honor those that serve and Teach the next generation the value of freedom. Your sponsorship will support the new and existing programs developed to share the mission. And, it will place a wreath to honor an American hero at one of more than 3,700 participating locations this year on National Wreaths Across America Day – a day set aside to lay gathers as Americans with the same goal.
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 hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice 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 those who stepped up to serve.
*Please Note: Specific locations designated as "ceremonial-only" accept a limited number of sponsorships. Any additional sponsorships received beyond those used for the ceremony will be distributed to other locations.
