The mobile Education Exhibit will help to Teach, not only the next generations, but all local community members about the services and sacrifices of our nation’s military. During the interactive tour, you’ll also learn how the wreaths are made and why Wreaths Across America plays such a vital role in serving veterans and their families across our country.
