COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine, April 23, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Wreaths Across America™ (WAA), the national nonprofit best known for their annual wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and more than 905 locations nationwide, today announced its specially-designed military appreciation thank you cards are now available to order. The organization has been designing and printing the cards since 2010, and is challenging every American to say thank you to a veteran or an active service member during National Military Appreciation Month this May. The cards are available for the cost of shipping and handling only, and can be ordered online at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org
"There are so many occasions in life where we wish we had the right words to thank a service man or woman who has put their life on the line to protect our freedoms," said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. "We created these cards to make it easier to approach veterans when the opportunity arises. Don't say I should have. Say I did."
The business card-sized military appreciation cards feature a scene of remembrance wreaths placed at Arlington National Cemetery during the holiday season accompanied by words of thanks for the recipient. On the back of the card, below the organization's stated mission to Remember, Honor and Teach, is space for the card-giver to sign their name as a way to personalize the note. Many card-givers present several with each exchange, so the recipient may also share in the experience of giving.
The 2014 theme for Wreaths Across America is, "Don't say I should have. Say I did." This was the personal motto of Sgt. Jeffrey Kirk who was killed in action in Al Anbar Province, Iraq in 2004. A classmate, as a reminder of Sgt. Kirk's bravery and sacrifice, shared his words.About Wreaths Across America
