On Dec. 12, Rep Ryan participated in the Wreaths Across America ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda. Wreaths Across America is a nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Ceremony. Its mission, “Remember, Honor, Teach” is carried out in part by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December in all 50 state capitols. When our soldiers, airmen, Marines and sailors put on our nation’s uniform, they do it out of honor and to protect our freedoms. When they sacrifice on the battlefield, they do that for each other.
