NMFTA Supports Wreaths Across America Initiative


Share This...

Each December, the trucking industry is instrumental in the delivery of hundreds of thousands of Wreaths Across America (WAA) remembrance wreaths at 3,500+ participating locations nationwide.

NMFTA’s Executive Director and WAA Board of Directors’ Member Debbie Ruane Sparks, and Director of Communications and Member Services Marli Hall, helped to welcome more than 60 professional truck drivers to Interstate Van Lines in Springfield, Virginia on the morning of Friday, Dec. 16.

The drivers were transporting nearly 300,000 wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery for Saturday’s National WAA Day wreath-laying event.
