Fallen Veterans Honored in Wreath Laying Ceremony

Fallen Veterans should not be forgotten. We owe our freedoms to those who fought for them, and we must honor the ones who gave all. A nationwide event recently celebrated the lives of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The event began at Arlington National Cemetery and expanded across the U.S where participants came together to place wreaths in honor of the veterans we lost. While this year has been challenging, it is heartwarming to see so many Americans coming out for this cause. Check out the video below to see what participants in Arizona did as part of this great event.

Of course, it’s great to see news like this that honors our fallen veterans. We love seeing stories like this. However, it’s just as important to not forget the veterans who are still with us. The Greatest Generation is working to help seniors who lived through World War II and Korea. By passing a bill we call The Greatest Generation Benefits Act, the lives of these great Americans would be dramatically improved. This bill is very important. However, as important as it is, Congress still has to pass it before it can go into effect. To make this happen, we need help. Please read more about our cause and sign our petition here.
