Truckers Earn Praise at MATS From Wreaths Across America

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Many people come to the Mid-America Trucking Show each year to show off their products and to try to earn truckers’ business.

Karen and Rob Worcester of Wreaths Across America came here for a different reason. They came to personally thank drivers.

Without volunteer truck drivers and their companies, WAA’s mission to “remember, honor, teach” and place wreaths on gravestones of fallen veterans each December would be impossible to accomplish.

“There are a lot of drivers working booths here, and it’s important for us to say thank you to them,” said Karen Worcester, executive director of WAA.

Karen and her son, Rob, a volunteer transportation and logistics coordinator for WAA, came to visit with as many of the 169 trucking companies who are involved with the mission as they could.
