Call to Action for National Wreaths Across America Day on December 17

Every third Saturday in December at military cemeteries across America, and especially at Arlington National Cemetery, we remember fallen U.S. veterans and honor those who served by laying evergreen wreaths at their final resting place. December 17 is the official date of the event in 2022.

Veterans Day: The Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month at Eleven AM

Veterans Day: The Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month at Eleven AM

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

The meaning of Veterans Day easily can be lost if not taught to the next generation of Americans. This requires cultivating values like loyalty, bravery, national pride, and, most of all, the willingness to lay down one's life in defense of America’s founding principles. It also requires us to understand what is so special about the Constitution of the United States, to which every servicemember swears an oath. No mere document is worth dying for, but the ideas, values, and convictions contained within our founding documents are.

U.S. Marine Corps Birthday: November 10

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date thousands of men and women have borne the name "Marine." In their memory, we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.
