Titan is grateful to have joined the Jupiter Jeep Club as they prepared the 1,300+ wreaths that were distributed at the graves of fallen Veterans at Forest Hill Memorial Park in Palm City. Volunteers moved and unloaded the trailers of boxes where refrigerated wreaths were then stacked in small piles at the ceremony site. We then straightened the bows, making sure they looked their best for the families that would honor their loved ones on this day. In more than 2,500 locations across America and throughout the world at 12pm local time, ceremonies were held in honor of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Families of all ages could be seen finding the graves with a small American flag indicating a Veteran’s final resting place. A wreath was then placed and their name and rank said aloud so they would not be forgotten. “Thank you for your service!” could be heard near and far as wreaths were placed as far as the eyes could see.
Children that could barely walk were seen placing the wreaths, then given a special memorial teddy bear they could take to remember their contribution on this momentous occasion. What a sight to see ages 1 – 99 unified in honoring not only family and friends, but complete strangers that were treated with equal honor and respect. Titan had the honor of placing many wreaths as we helped at the end also find the remaining soldiers who could not be forgotten.
