Wreaths Across America: Remember, Honor, Teach
Remember the fallen. Honor those who serve. Teach future generations about the sacrifices made to preserve our freedoms.
Every year, Edifice employees remember and honor our veterans, by joining over 1,000,000 citizens nationwide to purchase wreaths and participate in the Wreath Laying Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. In 2017, the Edifice team donated wreaths to honor our service men and women and their families.
