    Wreaths Across America 2017, KIA, POW/MIA
    USA, USN, USMC, USCG, USAF
    El Paso, Texas - 16 Dec 2017


    ABOUT THE MISSION:
    The Wreaths Across America story began over 23 years ago when Worcester Wreath
    Company began a tradition of placing wreaths on the headstones of our Nation's fallen
    heroes at Arlington National Cemetery during the holidays.
    Over that period, Worcester Wreath has donated tens of thousands of wreaths which
    were placed by volunteers in wreath-laying ceremonies each December. As word
    spread, the mission to Remember; Honor; and Teach about the sacrifices made by our
    veterans has captured the hearts and minds of many people in various communities
    across the Country.
    Again, this season the Patriot Guard Riders have again been invited to
    participate with a motorcycle escort of the trucks delivering wreaths for the "Wreaths
    Across America" ceremony at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery on the morning of
    Saturday, Dec 16, 2017. This year the PGR will have the opportunity of escorting
    two truckloads of wreaths.
