National Wreath’s Across America Day

Saturday, Dec. 15 was National Wreath’s Across America Day. Here is a touching video of the event at Arlington National Cemetery.

What began in 1992 with a trailer load of wreaths, decorated by volunteers and laid at the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery has now become a national organization with over 700 participating locations – all focused on the mission to Remember – Honor – and Teach.

With similar ceremonies taking place across the nation, the organization now has donated, over the past 21 years, more than a million wreaths to honor America’s war dead.
