Through Wreaths Across America, millions of our country’s fallen heroes will be honored this December at wreath-laying ceremonies. Thousands of volunteers make this event possible and among those are 42 J.B. Hunt drivers hauling wreaths en route to state and national cemeteries.
Wreaths Across America began in 1992 when Morrill Worcester of Worcester Wreath Company went to Arlington with his surplus of wreaths to be laid on the graves of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. In 2007, the non-profit Wreaths Across America was formed and the mission of “Remember. Honor. Teach.” began to be carried through the country by volunteers, veterans and the Worcester family. This year marks J.B. Hunt’s fifth year to participate and join others to carry on that same mission.
Beginning with the official kick-off on December 8, we’ll follow the 42 J.B. Hunt drivers as they take part in key exchange ceremonies and, ultimately, make their final stops on December 15. You can see the convoy’s progress on our J.B. Hunt Drivers Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social accounts.
