Wreaths Across America Day, a day to honor and remember our fallen heroes took place on December 16th, and in the spirit of understanding the immense effort that goes into this heartwarming tradition, we continue our series by interviewing Courtney, the Manager of Transportation and Industry Relations for Wreaths Across America. Courtney, a civilian with over 20 years of experience in the transportation industry, plays a pivotal role in ensuring that wreaths reach their intended destinations, covering the United States and beyond.

Courtney's role involves coordinating with over 400 partner organizations, each with a unique set of logistical challenges. As we sat down with Courtney, she shed light on the dedication and hard work required to make Wreaths Across America a success.

She shared stories of the challenges they face, from unpredictable weather conditions to the sheer scale of the operation. But Courtney and her team are relentless in their pursuit of making Wreaths Across America Day a memorable and meaningful experience for all.

Beyond the logistical aspects, Courtney emphasized the emotional significance of the day. Seeing the impact on families and communities is what keeps her motivated year after year. It's not just about delivering wreaths; it's about honoring the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.

We can't help but be grateful for individuals like her who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that Wreaths Across America Day is a heartfelt and touching tribute to our nation's heroes. Her passion for her work and her commitment to honoring our veterans make her an integral part of this cherished tradition.
