REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to Pack 421's Wreaths Across America Page. 

On National Wreaths Across America Day, Pack 421 will be helping Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan, to Remember and Honor our veterans by laying Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes.

This year, for every two wreaths you sponsor, Wreaths Across America will sponsor one additional wreath per order! Therefore, you will be sponsoring three wreaths for the price of two. We are hoping to help cover and honor more fallen service members gravestones this way. 

Thank you so much for supporting Pack 421 and Wreaths Across America!
