The Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit started its national tour months ago at the WAA headquarters in Maine and is now making its way to 625 Turkey Cove Lane, Knoxville, TN which is where the Exhibit will be located as it invites visitors to stop by.
This visit will be a special chance for people to come by and get a free tour of the exhibit. Members of the media, dignitaries, veterans and other interested groups are urged to come join us as this is a unique opportunity to learn more about Wreaths Across America, the work being done to honor veterans and get a first-hand account of what it is like to deliver 2.5 million Wreaths on December 19th of this year and how WAA’s work impacts families all across America. The goal of the WAA Education Exhibit is to bring local communities and our military together with education, stories, and interactive connections.

WAA takes great pride in its mission to Remember, Honor, Teach. The Mobile Education Exhibit will help to teach not only the next generation but all community members and visitors about the services and sacrifices of our nation’s military. All veterans, active-duty military, their families, and the local community are invited and encouraged to speak with Wreaths Across America volunteers to learn more about the organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach.
“The goal of The Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to build community awareness and understanding of the organization’s yearlong mission to Remember, Honor, Teach,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. “However, in light of the current health crisis, we feel this exhibit has taken on even more meaning by providing the opportunity for people to safely participate in something with safety measures in place that is both educational and fun, while supporting and giving back to the community during this uncertain time.”
This event is open to the public with social distancing, sanitation and COVID-19 safety procedures in place to protect the health of all visitors in accordance with the CDC’s recommendation for large gatherings stemming from concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
All are invited and encouraged to come and spread the message of Remember, Honor and Teach about our nation’s veterans and their sacrifices to encourage American unity as we work towards our mission of placing a wreath on every fallen soldier’s grave on December 19th, 2020.
Although some ceremonies may look a little different as public safety and respect for our host venues takes precedence, we are resolved in our mission to make Wreaths Across America Day happen in 2020.
