“The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember the fallen, honor those who have served and their families and teach the next generation the value of freedom,” said Karen Worcester, Executive Director. “The Mobile Education Exhibit provides the unique opportunity for communities to come together and share the stories of those who served and sacrificed.”
The exhibit will feature interactive exhibits, short films and shared stories. It serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service of veterans. All community members are invited to the events.
