    Exclamation Wreaths Across America Volunteering

    Waldo ain't here .... but, Pappy is !! Can you spot me in this group unloading wreaths for the veterans graves at Camp Nelson National Cemetery ??

    I just helped unload & place them on the graves last year ... this year I've sponsored 10 wreaths, and plan on helping unload & place them on the graves again this year.




    Maybe you can pick me out in this pic :

    12/11/19 ...

    Getting the convoy ready to roll. That's Pappy at the far right in the small pic (under the video):

    Truckers haul in wreaths destined to honor vets at Camp Nelson



    Another local news station captures Pappy (with orange mittens) holding up a palette of boxes of wreaths, prior to loading them on a trailer (still photo in the video):

    Thousands of wreaths arrive at Camp Nelson National Cemetery - ABC 36 News



    First semi driver & his wife standing in the back of Pappy's truck applying Wreaths Across America decal :

    Everyone getting lined up to start the convoy to the cemetery :



    Rolling Thunder guys & other Vets and volunteers offloading the semi onto smaller trailers for dispersal this coming Saturday 12/14/19



    Over 2000 boxes unloaded from two separate semi tractor trailer trucks ... each box containing 5 wreaths & weighing around 30lbs. Total number of individual wreaths was over 10,400
