~ 2015 Dodge Wreaths across America Project ~
Billerica, MA – The Dodge Company is honored to continue its tradition of supporting our nation’s heroes in conjunction with the ongoing efforts of Wreaths across America (WAA). The annual tour of our nation’s capital and all things military will be led by Sally Belanger, Dodge’s Community Relations Liaison. Sally has been conducting such tours for the past eight years in preparation of the annual Arlington Wreath Project which will take place Saturday, December 12, 2015 at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC).
2014 marked a true milestone for Wreaths across America with in excess of 226,525 wreaths being placed on the graves of our nation’s heroes at Arlington National Cemetery. Another 679,500 wreaths were placed in veterans cemeteries both nationally and internationally. The Dodge Company and its tour participants were proud to be a part of this endeavor. All in all, a total of 706,000 wreaths were placed on the graves of our nation’s heroes in 2014. With a “can do spirit” we will continue to work toward the day when the graves of all veterans will be decorated. With your help and the belief of the American people, we can make it happen!
This year marks the 151th anniversary of Arlington National Cemetery, the 24rd Wreath Laying Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, and Belanger’s 9th kickoff tour which showcases our nation’s capital and the surrounding area along with monuments honoring our service men and women. The mission statement of Wreaths across America is Remember, Honor and Teach. Without question, that is exactly what this tour will do. Tour participants will remember the fallen, honor those who serve, and teach the children the price of freedom throughout the tour.
Individuals interested in participating in the 2015 Dodge Wreaths across America tour are encouraged to save the dates of December 10-13, 2015, and to contact Sally Belanger at 207-406-2703 or firstname.lastname@example.org to receive detailed tour information. Additionally, information will be available at Dodgeco.com. For planning purposes, please be sure to contact Sally at your earliest convenience. We hope you and your family will plan to join us as we leave with a mission and return with a memory …a memory you will long remember!
