Moss Building and design honors veterans by making a donation for the second consecutive year to Wreaths Across America in honor of employee family members.

Wreaths laid in Arlington National Cemetery to honor veteran's lives.

To know that he and his fellow military family and friends are recognized at this time of year brings a touch of light to a holiday season spent without the presence of a loved one.

For the second year in a row, Northern Virginia remodeling company Moss Building and Design is donating memorial wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery for their annual wreath laying. The donations for the wreaths were given in remembrance of employee family members and spouses who have served in the military. The initiative, which was spearheaded by Community Relations Manager Jenn Zschunke, honored those lost in the time honored tradition.

The tradition of laying wreaths in Arlington National Cemetery has been around since 1992 when Morrill Worcester, owner of Worcester Wreath Company, donated a surplus of wreaths to a section of Arlington Cemetery that had been receiving fewer visitors through the years. In 2005, a picture of the wreaths went viral on the internet, bringing national attention to the efforts to honor veterans.

Today, the wreath laying is supported by the non-profit Wreaths Across America. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, their mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. "We are not here to 'decorate graves.' We're here to remember not their deaths, but their lives." —Karen Worcester, Executive Director of Wreaths Across America

Moss Building & Design made a donation in honor of those who have served our country and loved ones who are no longer with us. Community Relations team member Pam Kopiak, whose father served in the US Air force, is happy about the donation. “Being able to take part in this Wreaths Across America event means a great deal to me as my father was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. To know that he and his fellow military family and friends are recognized at this time of year brings a touch of light to a holiday season spent without the presence of a loved one.”
