On December 12th, volunteers all over the nation will coordinate their efforts to honor our fallen veterans. Wreaths Across America recognizes those who serve through wreath-laying ceremonies in veteran cemeteries.
In 2012, Carter Express driver, Andy Riddle, brought the idea of volunteering time and trucks to help deliver the wreaths. Carter has participated in the program every year since and so has Andy. This year, Andy and Michelle Riddle will be transporting a trailer of fresh evergreen wreaths from Bangor, Maine to the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas. They have delivered here for the past couple years and the team at the cemetery has requested that they return every year.
We are so grateful to Andy and Michelle for spearheading Carter’s involvement in this program! It’s an honor to help recognize these veterans and show their families that they are not forgotten.
