Don’t Say I Should Have. Say I Did.
Each year Wreaths Across America selects a theme that exemplifies the message that the organization wants to communicate. The mission remains the same: Remember, Honor, and Teach.
After much deliberation and many great submissions, this year’s theme arrived via educator Larry Ross, who recounted the story of his students and a fitting tribute at the stone of Mike McGreevy in Arlington National Cemetery. The words came from a personal motto of Sgt. Jeffrey Kirk (KIA in Al Anbar Province, Iraq in 2004) shared with a classmate, after he stepped up to do the bravest thing he had yet to do in his young life.
