“The goal of the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit is to bring community together and teach patriotism while remembering the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. “However, since the Mobile Education Exhibit won’t be available we ask that folks in New Jersey Join us for a national flag waving effort of September 7th as a way to come together and teach patriotism.”

The MEE achieves this goal by bringing the local community, veterans, active-duty military and their families together through interactive exhibits, short films, and shared stories.
