(NASDAQ: JBHT), one of the largest supply chain solutions providers in North America, will conclude its participation in Wreaths Across America this year at multiple ceremonies throughout the country on December 16, including one at Fayetteville National Cemetery.
On Saturday, known as Wreath Across America Day, event volunteers and the general public will join thousands nationwide in placing wreaths on the graves of fallen service men and women. More than 40 J.B. Hunt drivers are helping the wreaths reach their final destinations for the nonprofit. This year, J.B.

“As a supporter and advocate of the veteran community, we are proud to take part in Wreaths Across America for the fourth consecutive year,” said Craig Harper, executive vice president of operations and chief operations officer at J.B. Hunt. “Many of our employees are veterans or have family members in the service, which makes it even more meaningful for J.B. Hunt to participate during the holiday season.”
In addition to Saturday’s national events, J.B. Hunt drivers and employees have participated in local memorial ceremonies along the convoy routes. Upon arrival at the exchange points, the wreath truck drivers exchange truck keys with the new driver, honor and remember veterans with remarks, and depart on the next stretch of the journey with local communities lining the exit route in remembrance of those who served.
