Wreaths Across America to Stop in Connecticut on Dec. 17th

Posted on November 30, 2022


Wreaths Across America (WAA) will honor Veterans during a ceremony at the State Veterans Cemetery Middletown Connecticut (CTMVCM) on December 17, 2022, at 12:00 p.m.

WAA is also travelling the country with its Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE), a rolling interactive museum that shares the organization’s mission to Remember the nation’s fallen veterans, Honor those who serve, and teach the next generation about the value of freedom.

In January of 2022, the MEE left Maine and began its national tour in Florida and will be finishing this year’s route as a member of the annual “Escort to Arlington.” The weeklong escort – known to some as the world’s longest veterans’ parade – will make stops at schools and memorials down the East Coast carrying Gold Star and Blue Star Families, veterans and patriots sharing the mission and bringing communities together, culminating at Arlington National Cemetery on National Wreaths Across America Day – Saturday, December 17, 2022.

Most important, the MEE and WAA Ambassadors transporting the mobile museum and sharing the mission, are proud to have officially welcomed home more than 3,300 Vietnam Veterans since it first hit the road in 2019 as part of the organization’s partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration.
