TPREIA/InterNACHI Inspectors Partner With Wreaths Across America

Dear Texas Inspectors

For several years TPREIA has partnered with Wreaths Across America for a one day event held usually on the second Saturday in December. It is held at over 600 national and international veterans cemeteries.
The story of its birth is quite interesting and you should take a moment to read about it at

You can also find the TPREIA donation page there.

One might think this is a morbid event especially so close to Christmas. It is anything but that, it is inspiring and pay tribute to the men and women who gave all for our freedom. Just ask any inspector who has attended or ridden with the Patriot Guard escorting the wreath trucks into town or their kids and grand kids or the boy scout troops or the hundreds of thousands who participate each year. 15,000 here in Houston last year.

Why don’t you know about this…am not sure but your should. The real reason that I am writing is to thank the many inspectors and the chapters who contributed to the wreaths that grace the headstones of our fallen heros;
The Texas Professional Real Estate Inspectors Assoocation
TPREIA Montgomery Metro Chapter
TPREIA Greater Houston Chapter
Paul and Brenda Roebuck
Dale Hall
Kevin Smith
Bruce McCrary
Sam Sahagian
Doyle Venghaus
Mike Cothran

If December 12 has not passed when you receive this please come out to your local event, if it has passed please mark your calendar for next year. You will not regret it and you will continue to come out year after year…
You will bring your kids and their kids to let them learn what it really takes to preserve a democracy.

Merry Christmas
Mike Cothran
