Tennessee will be the first destination on the Wreaths Across America Mobile Education Exhibit national tour. Seven stops are planned, starting Aug. 12 in Hixson, Tenn.

“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 of Wreaths Across America. “However, over the last year, in light of the current health crisis, we feel this exhibit has taken on even more meaning by providing the opportunity for people to safely participate in something that is both educational and inspiring, while supporting and giving back to the communities it visits.”

Interactive exhibits, short films and shared storied will be part of the Mobile Education Exhibit experience, which is free and open to the public for tours.

All veterans, active-duty military, their families, and local community are encouraged to visit the Mobile Education Exhibit when it’s in your area.
