Wreaths Across America Mobile Exhibit Stops in Steubenville

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTRF)

Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit stopped in Steubenville on Monday.

Their mission is to educate people and remember the sacrifice of those who have served past and present.

The whole unit is full of the history of the wreaths and how it was founded and what the 10 bouquets represent.

Each representing a special quality; belief, love, strength, honesty, humility, ambitions, optimism, concern, pride, hopes and dreams.

“It’s very humbling to listen to it and everyone walks out with tears in their eyes, you know, so yeah, if you’ve never seen this unit before, yeah, you think it’s not a big- thing, but let me tell you if there is a deep learning experience when you go through here.

Every family in America has somewhere along the line a friend relative family member or something that’s a veteran so when they don’t want to start understanding what we do is honor veterans fighters and to always remember them.
