Hampton Roads Moving and Storage Moves Wreaths Across America

4/15/2021

For the last eight years, Hampton Roads Moving and Storage (1083) has participated in sponsoring Wreaths Across America, an organization whose mission is to Remember our fallen U.S. veterans, Honor those who serve, and Teach children the value of freedom. Each December, this mission is carried out through wreath-laying ceremonies taking place at over 2,100 locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.

With the help of Professional Van Operators James Blankenship and Steven Meyer, Hampton Roads Moving and Storage has delivered multiple trailer loads of wreaths to national cemeteries in Virginia, including Arlington National Cemetery, along with cemeteries in North Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, and Florida.

Hampton Roads offers more than just transportation support to Wreaths Across America, though. Founder Don Queeney, along with Meyer, has become a liaison for the organization and educated fellow movers about the mission of Wreaths Across America. On top of that, monetary donations have been made to support Freedom’s Cadence, a fundraising group spearheaded by an 11-year-old girl with a goal to make sure every veteran buried at Yorktown Cemetery is honored with a wreath. And, as a gesture of appreciation to their relationship with

Atlas® Van Lines, Hampton Roads Moving and Storage donated $1,500, enough for 100 wreaths, for the 2020 ceremony at Oak Hill Cemetery in Evansville, IN, where Atlas® is headquartered. “We are privileged to serve a lot of military families in their relocations, and we have a true admiration and respect for what they do,” said Chad Queeney, Vice President, Hampton Roads Moving and Storage. “We’re proud to support Wreaths Across America and their mission of Remembering, Honoring, and Teaching. We know we wouldn’t be where we are today without those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, so it’s important to us to pay our respects in whatever way we can.”
