Mission Accomplished: Fresh Family Volunteers at Wreaths Across America

An icy, cold and rainy Saturday morning quickly thawed with the warmth of the Fresh Family members who showed up in full force for Wreaths Across America.

At Tommy McFly’s count, more than 260 volunteers met The Tommy Show to set donated wreaths at the headstones of those laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

The rugged Fresh Family gathered in Fashion Centre at Pentagon City and continued on to join the tens of thousands fanning out across the cemetery for the annual tradition.

Kelly, Jen and Tommy led the crowd into section 64, where they distributed wreaths on the graves of fallen heroes and reflected on their sacrifices. The team wore bright red hats supplied by UPS Stores of Northern Virginia.

Every year I am humbled by the volunteers and the effort that makes this happen. #respect #honor

The Wreaths Across America project has become an annual tradition at Arlington. It began in 1992 when a Maine wreathmaker donated 5,000 surplus wreaths to the cemetery.

Last year, the Fresh Family was able to lay enough wreaths to cover every grave site along with 70,000 other volunteers.
