According to a press release on Nov. 16, Wreaths Across America (WAA) officials expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support from communities nationwide for their Mobile Education Exhibit (MEE).
The MEE serves as a traveling interactive museum, conveying the organization’s mission to honor the fallen, remember those who serve, and instill in the next generation the importance of freedom.
The national tour for 2024 is set to take off in North Carolina in January, moving to South Carolina in February, with stops in Georgia, Kentucky, and Florida in March and April. The MEE will then journey to Tennessee and Ohio in May, Arkansas in June, and continue through Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, and Illinois throughout the summer. In September and October, the exhibit will visit the Delmarva peninsula before traveling through New England the following month. The tour will end in Maine, joining Wreaths Across America’s “Escort to Arlington” ahead of Wreaths Across America Day 2024.
When the MEE arrives in your area, veterans, active-duty military, their families, and local community members are invited to visit, take a tour, and engage with WAA Ambassadors and volunteers.
Public tours are free and open to everyone, with a special emphasis on encouraging questions, story-sharing, and the unique experience offered by the exhibit, especially for veterans.
“The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring communities together and teach about the organization’s mission,” said Trish Gardner, manager of the MEE. “The exhibit serves as a mobile museum, educating visitors about the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes and serving as an official ‘welcome home’ station for our nation’s Vietnam veterans.”
