Fikes Truck Line recently participated in Wreaths Across America, a non-profit organization that aims to place holiday wreaths at veterans cemeteries across the United States on Wreaths Across America Day.
Jeff Edmonson, a Fikes driver since June 2006, loaded a trailer with wreaths in Harrington, Maine, on Dec. 1. Over the following week, he delivered wreaths to cemeteries in Alabama and Louisiana. He was greeted at each stop by volunteers, ready to unload the fresh wreaths.
“So many people are forgotten in these cemeteries. Yet these heroes have given the ultimate sacrifice for us. This is just a small gesture to honor and remember their lives,” said Gary Salisbury, Fikes president and CEO.
