Anthony Uriati, Vice President of Operations for Arpin Van Lines said, “This is our sixth year participating in Wreaths Across America Day and we are proud to be a part of this national movement to honour our veterans. This event is a carefully coordinated nationwide effort among our drivers and agents to pick up the wreaths, transport and deliver them to veteran cemeteries across the country. It has become a valued tradition here at Arpin, which our drivers look forward to each year.”

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. The organisation coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 800 cemeteries and military memorials in all 50 states, at sea and abroad.
