After almost falling victim to cancel culture earlier this month, Wreaths Across America honored fallen veterans in full force on Saturday.

Traditional green wreaths with a red bow are laid on the gravestones of those who have served at Arlington National Cemetery and over 2,500 locations across the country and abroad on the congressionally designated holiday that fell on Dec. 18 this year.

“I have a deep appreciation for those who serve and who give up part of their life, or sometimes all of it,” Cindy Kauffman, a regular participant in the tradition and daughter of a veteran soldier told Fox News.

“Honoring veterans is extremely important,” she explained. “It’s extremely important that we don’t ever forget what our veterans have done for us. They’ve been giving their lives for our freedom. Those who serve deserve our respect.”

Kauffman has several relatives that served in the military and was taught from an early age “to love and appreciate the flag, the Constitution, and our country.” When she found out that her great-great-grandfathers had fought in the American Revolution, she felt called to teach others “what they and every other soldier since them have fought for.”

The Governor-elect of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin (R) participated in the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery where hundreds of thousands of wreaths were laid by volunteers.

The organization’s goal is to “Remember our fallen U.S. Veterans. Honor those who serve,” and to “Teach your children the value of freedom.” Their website also explains, “While coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December on National Wreaths Across America Day is a big part of what we do, our mission to Remember, Honor, and Teach is carried out throughout the year. From our Remembrance Tree program to the Wreaths Across America Museum in Maine, there are many different ways in which you can get involved!”

The event began on Dec. 11 in Maine before it started the trek to Arlington National Ceremony in what amounts to the longest veterans’ parade in the country. Along the way the organization delivers wreaths to accomplish their goals of remembering honoring and teaching about the fallen veterans.

Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) attacked the tradition last month by declaring that Wreaths Across America is “carpet bombing” veterans’ gravesites with a “Christian gang sign.”

“We’re not saying you can’t [place wreaths], but you cannot blanket it like that,” Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) president Michael ‘Mikey’ Weinstein told Fox News. “That’s like carpet-bombing.”
