Wreaths Across America started almost 25 years ago in Maine. A tradition of donating and placing wreaths on the headstones of fallen heroes. 
This weekend, a procession of tractor-trailer trucks carrying the wreaths are being escorted by the Patriot Guard Riders. The convoy is scheduled to make several stops in Maine and New Hampshire. Including the Kittery Trading Post in Maine for a ceremony.

From there, the convoy will be escorted to Greenland by Greenland Police, and then it will travel out of Greenland on Route 151 through North Hampton to Route 1 south in Hampton.

(The drive through Greenland is in memory and honor of Police Chief Mike Maloney, who was killed in the line of duty.)

Wreaths Across America will make a special stop in Hampton on Monday, Dec. 12th for a ceremony at Post 35, which is scheduled to begin around 2 p.m.

From there, the convoy will pass through Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut en route to Arlington. The journey will conclude at Arlington National Cemetery the morning of Saturday, Dec. 17, which is National Wreaths Across America Day.
