REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom. Learn more about this year’s Wreaths Across America event.
At McGuire Moving and Storage, we are proud to partner with Wreaths Across America and Songs For Soldiers each year to honor the men and women of our military who have been laid to rest at Jefferson Barracks Cemetery in St. Louis.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 12:00 PM.
Wreaths Across America will be at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery to Remember and Honor our veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
“The idea is, with great reverence, to lay a wreath on that headstone, mention that person’s name. Sometimes that’s the last time it gets mentioned,” says Josh McGuire, President of McGuire Moving and Storage.
Over 150,000 wreaths stop at McGuire Moving and Storage, which acts as the middle man before shipping the wreaths to Jefferson Barracks or other national cemeteries further west.
McGuire has been working with Wreaths Across America for the last seven years. The mission – to remember, honor, and teacher.
