Wreaths Across America & Load One

Hi Everyone,

For the last few years Load One has supported Wreaths Across America.  This year John Elliott, in typical generous form, sponsored 100 wreaths for this year's pledge along with 3 units to help transport over 5,000 wreaths. 

Load One will provide a Straight and 2 Tractors with beautiful Patriot One and now Patriot 2 in tow.  You just can't miss them when you see them, gorgeous artwork moving down the highway.

Most of us only see Wreaths Across America covered by news broadcasts on the day of delivery when it's too late to help out for that year. 

I thought I'd give everyone a heads up that we have this week in which we can pitch in any way we can to help support the goal of spreading the message to remember, honor and teach in placing a wreath on every grave at every military cemetery in the U.S. on December 14th.

An individual Wreath Sponsorship costs just $15 or 10 Wreaths for $150.  

It's super easy to offer monetary support, go to: or

You just click on the site, choose your pledge amount, add it to your Cart, confirm your address so they can match up your billing info, enter your credit card and you're done.

Your pledge reminds families that their sacrifices were not forgotten, reinforces the spirits of our troops, and also supports Load One...a leader in giving back to our Expediting Community by choreographing both time and resources to make this commendable endeavor succeed.

“To be killed in war is not the worst that can happen. To be lost is not the worst that can happen… to be forgotten is the worst.” -Pierre Claeyssens (1909-2003)

‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.’ - Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)

Merry Christmas, Everyone
