Wreaths of Honor Program
Friends of the Battleship North Carolina is selling wreaths to decorate the battleship and honor veterans and active-duty service members.
The Friends of the Battleship North Carolina has launched its second annual Wreaths of Honor program, providing a unique way to honor veterans and active-duty service members this holiday season. Purchase a 20-inch evergreen holiday wreath for $35 from the Friends of the Battleship, and it will be placed for display on the lifelines of Battleship North Carolina from December 7 through January 7. The wreaths will be decorated with ribbon and a personalized card with the name, branch of service and years served of the individual being honored. Purchasers will receive a photograph of their wreaths by email after it has been placed on the lifelines.
Last year’s inaugural Wreaths of Honor program resulted in nearly 200 veterans being honored with wreaths displayed on the historic Battleship during the holiday season. Proceeds from the sale of the Wreaths of Honor benefit the Friends’ effort to Preserve the Legacy by helping fund programs, acquisitions and restoration of Battleship North Carolina.
