J.B. Hunt proudly participated in this year’s Wreaths Across America (WAA) event and carried out the organization’s mission to Remember, Honor and Teach by delivering a total of eight loads of wreaths.
The wreaths were transported from the WAA headquarters in Harrington, Maine to national cemeteries and facilities throughout the country. Volunteers placed thousands of wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers at national cemeteries.
- Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Va.
- Fayetteville National Cemetery, Fayetteville, Ark.
- Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery, Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
- Fort Snelling National Cemetery, Fort Snelling, Minn.
- Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Fort Rosecrans, Calif.
- Miramar National Cemetery, Miramar, Calif.
- Saint Louis Cross-dock, Saint Louis, Mo.
Numerous military Veteran J.B. Hunt drivers, who were nominated by their managers, participated in delivering wreaths this year. DCS driver and military Veteran Robert Freeman found participating in WAA to be beyond rewarding. “I’m humbled, can’t keep my mouth shut. Awestruck, and the feeling is still going on,” he said.
