December 16, 2022
Christenson Transportation is a proud supporter of Wreaths Across America, helping with transportation in delivering wreaths to be placed on the graves of our fallen heroes from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery on December 17. National Wreaths Across America Day, the organization which is dedicated to honoring and thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice, coordinates a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, as well as at more than 3,500 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
This year, Christenson Transportation was chosen to help transport these wreaths as part of the Honor Fleet, and help the national nonprofit fulfill its mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach, with the delivery of live, balsam veterans' wreaths.
"This year our transportation partners will assist us in delivering more than two million veterans' wreaths to be placed on the headstones of our fallen heroes all over the country on December 17, 2022," said Don Queeney, WAA's Director of Transportation. "We are grateful for the support of companies like Christenson Transportation who are taking the opportunity to give back in recognition of the sacrifice our veterans make, and because of their support we are able to fulfill our mission."
"We are very proud and honored to be a part of the Wreaths Across America mission in helping assist in delivering wreaths to remember our nation's fallen heroes," said Don Christenson, Chief Executive Officer, and President, of Christenson Transportation.
