Arpin drivers deliver wreaths on National Wreaths Across America Day

Mar 09, 2017
Over 20 Arpin Van Lines drivers and agents from locations across the Northeast, Midwest and South of the USA, volunteered to collect and deliver remembrance wreaths to be laid at veteran cemeteries on National Wreaths Across America Day on December 17.

"This is our fourth year participating in this event and the outpouring of support from our drivers, agents and employees continues to amaze and inspire me," said David Vieira, Vice President of Arpin Van Lines.   

Each Arpin trailer carried 600 boxes containing 5,400 wreaths. Combined, the 20 Arpin drivers and agents delivered approximately 108,000 wreaths to veteran cemeteries across the United States for remembrance ceremonies.  

"Before placing each wreath, we recited the name of the fallen soldier," said Brian Asay, Vice President of the Arpin Charitable Fund. "It was very emotional for everyone involved. I brought my 14-year-old son, Cameron, because it's important for young people to recognize our veterans' ultimate sacrifice and to know that the freedom they have is thanks to these heroes."  

Wreaths Across America is a national non-profit organisation, founded in 2007, to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery started by Maine businessman, Morrill Worcester, in 1992.
