Meet The Experts: Karen Worcester of Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America has been placing wreaths at the graves of U.S. veterans during the Christmas season for over 30 years. What started as a quiet and chance endeavor in the early 1990s has grown into a worldwide collaboration.

Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America, explains the humble beginnings of the wreaths project and how she and many volunteers have mobilized countless people to get involved in not only remembering veterans after they’ve gone, but also teaching America’s youth about their sacrifices so their memories can live on.
