Witte Bros. is a Proud Partner to Wreaths Across America

For the last ten years Witte Bros. Exchange has been a proud partner in the Wreaths Across America Program. This is a weeklong journey to Arlington National Cemetery. In participation are 168 companies delivering 300 loads of wreaths to veteran cemeteries along the way.

It has become an important and powerful annual experience, and many towns request to become stops along the convoy route. The efforts are enormous and depend heavily on trucks, trailers and professional drivers. The Truckload Carriers Association and its members, including Witte Bros. make it possible to deliver wreaths to all 50 states. Since the beginning of WAA in 2007, more than 3,000,000 wreaths have been laid on the graves of the fallen. A special thank you goes out to our own U.S Army Veteran Charles Vanderschans and his wife Lisa for driving the miles on behalf of Witte Bros. Exchange.

We look forward to our future participation in this annual event to remember, honor and teach future generations about the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served our country.
