COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine and WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — The Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit will head to Florida June 23-26 to join the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall in honoring American Gold Star families at the American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., 85th Annual National Convention at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport in West Palm Beach.
Wreaths Across America Radio will broadcast live throughout the event on the iHeart Radio app, Audacy app, TuneIn app, or at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/radio.
“American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., is so grateful for WAA to be a part of our 85th Annual Convention and of our partnership for well over five years,” Jo Ann Maitland, national president of American Goldstar Mothers, Inc., said. “With like-minded missions, WAA brings American Gold Star Mothers throughout the United States the ability to remember, honor, and teach, with the beautiful act of placing a live, balsam wreath on the graves of our heroes. This simple but most important mission helps educate those to remember, ‘the freedoms that we enjoy are not free.”
The MEE will be on display with the Global War on Terrorism Memorial, 9/11 Memorial, Hershel “Woody” Williams Educational Trailer, static display of military vehicles, and other vendors, exhibitors, and food trucks. This free event will take place at 150 Australian Ave., West Palm Beach.
“The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring communities together and teach about the organization’s mission while remembering the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes,” Don Queeney, director of transportation and the Mobile Education Exhibit of Wreaths Across America, said. “The exhibit serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes as well as serving as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam Veterans. We are always overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from communities and honored to be joining the American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., as they remember and honor their children.”
