The real estate professionals at Prudential Network Realty recently joined thousands across the country to support a national campaign to remember and honor fallen veterans. Team members from the company’s St. Augustine branch office participated in a “Wreaths Across America” ceremony with the Veterans Council of St. Johns County at the St. Augustine National Cemetery, placing memorial wreaths on headstones of fallen soldiers.
“We are proud to be a part of Wreaths Across America’s mission to honor those who have served our country and defended our freedom,” said Prudential Network Realty Broker/Manager Ann King of the company’s St. Augustine office, who initiated the company’s participation in the campaign. “In addition to honoring the memory of the fallen soldiers, we want our youth to understand the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom.”
The Prudential Network Realty St. Augustine branch office donated more than $500 to support Wreaths Across America’s mission to place a memorial wreath on the headstone of every fallen soldier. The team members collected donations from friends, family, customers and community members.
The goal of Wreaths Across America is to place a wreath on every veteran’s grave or marker in every National Cemetery in the United States, overseas and on the seven seas on the second Saturday of December.
