Remembering Our Heroes at Wreath Laying Ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery

Early last week in honor of Memorial Day, Suburban Propane joined one of our long-standing customers, Historic Tours of America, for a wreath-laying ceremony at the President John F. Kennedy Gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery to honor the memory of the nation’s fallen heroes.

CEO of Historic Tours of America, Chris Belland reminds us that, “Memorial Day is not just a once-a-year remembrance for us at Historic Tours of America, but a respect we try to convey to the guests from all over the world that we host on Arlington National Cemetery Tours.”

The Historic Tours of America is a renowned company that offers an exceptional and immersive experience for history enthusiasts and curious travelers alike. With their wide array of tours, they provide a unique opportunity to explore and learn about the rich heritage and landmarks of various cities across the United States.

The Arlington National Cemetery represents the lasting homage to the individuals who have committed their lives to defend the principles and values of our country. The cemetery is open year-round for historic tours, only closed two days out of the year for a wreath-laying ceremony with Wreaths Across America.

A donation from Suburban Propane will provide support to programs dedicated to commemorating the deceased, show respect to those who serve, and educate the upcoming generations about the importance of freedom. Additionally, this contribution allows for wreaths to be laid on the graves of those who gave their lives in service, this upcoming December at Arlington National Cemetery through Wreaths Across America.

“… we are honored to stand alongside the Historic Tours of America team to remember all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of our great nation,” said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane. “Throughout our 95-year history, Suburban Propane has been dedicated to supporting and hiring veterans, and we have a deep appreciation for their commitment to our freedom and safety.”

As the nation’s storyteller, Historic Tours of America delivers a memorable and educational experience, allowing visitors to delve into the fascinating stories that have shaped our nation’s history. Memorial Day serves as a poignant reminder of the price of freedom and serves to unite the nation in remembrance and honor.

At Suburban Propane, we recognize the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom. We are committed to supporting veterans and their families through our “Heroes Hired Here” program, which offers several employment benefits to those who have served.
