DALLAS – This past Saturday, Dec. 12, 100 wreaths were placed on gravesites at West Point Cemetery thanks to a donation by TSP (Technology Service Professionals) to Wreaths Across America (WAA), as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. This marks the second year TSP has sponsored wreaths as part of the national organization’s annual initiative.
“As an organization that supports and celebrates veterans and military members, this initiative is very close to our hearts,” said co-founder and CEO Frank Gonzalez. “Our customer NetApp works hard as a fundraising group to raise money to lay wreaths on the graves of our fallen soldiers, and we’re proud to participate in conjunction with them.”
“The decision to support Wreaths Across America was an easy one – I started my career with service in the U.S. Army, and we’re always looking for ways to align our initiatives with those of our customers,” said Rick Skaggs, co-founder and president, TSP. “We’re humbled to do our part to support.”
Wreaths Across America’s mission — Remember, Honor, Teach — is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. The organization comprises more than 1,000 local fundraising groups in all 50 states representing more than 900 cemeteries, military memorials and other locations, along with our Nation’s cemetery at Arlington.
