Wreaths At Arlington
Today I had the honor of participating in the Arlington Wreath Project. For the past 15 years the Worcester Wreath Co. of Maine has donated Christmas wreaths to be placed on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. It was a fairly small affair for the first 14 years.
But last year an Air Force photograph and the internet changed all that. Thanks to one of those "forward this to everyone you know" e-mails and this photo there were about 600 volunteers this year.
Fortunately there were also 5,00 wreaths. My friends and I got to lay out about 6 of them each.
