Back in in 2007, our Director and his son were looking at a video about the Arlington wreath laying and commenting on the event here at the Houston National Cemetery. They placed their order for wreaths and called the cemetery to see when they could place them. At that time, they then found out that the Houston National Cemetery did not receive live wreaths for all burial sites, due to lack of funding.  However, the cemetery does receive seven wreaths (each representing one of the branches of service and the MIA/POW’s) as all other National Cemeteries do. The ceremony is held to place seven wreaths in the front of the National Cemetery.  The son, perplexed by this claimed “that’s not fair” and later in the day simply stated “let’s go get some wreaths.” This was the beginning of a goal for not only one boy and his dad, but also family, friends and volunteers.

Almost seven years later, there is an entire city behind the event.  Houston showed the Nation how we honor our fallen soldiers, by placing a wreath on 55,000+ grave sites at the Houston National Cemetery with a goal to reach all 70,000 + sites.  Great American Title Company has found it a privilege to be involved in this honor.
