Wreaths Across America Convoy Reaches Arlington National Cemetery

From Transport Topics – December 12, 2015

The Wreaths Across America convoy arrived at Arlington National Cemetery in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area in time for the laying of wreaths on Dec. 12.

The convoy began on the morning of Dec. 6, departing from Harrington, Maine.

The ATA Share the Road truck, with professional drivers Jerry Charron and Eddie Hosegood of XPO Logistics behind the wheel, was part of that convoy. Charron and Hosegood first met during their military service as U.S. Marines when they were assigned to the same unit on a Western Pacific tour. They reconnected when both were finalists for America’s Road Team in 2009; Charron with Con-way Freight out of Vermont and Hosegood with Publix out of Florida.

Look back as the convoy’s journey as the Share the Road team made its way to Arlington and unloaded wreaths for volunteers to place at gravesites.
