Wreaths Across America was this past Saturday, December 15th. My brother, a member of the Patriot Guard Riders, invited us to join him and the rest of the PGR at the local Veterans Cemetery. This was our first year to attend; we will be attending every year from now on that we can. This is an amazing event, a wonderful way to honor our veterans..
Every year on a specified Saturday in December, coordinated wreath laying ceremonies are held at Arlington National Cemetery and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. The goal is to remember the veterans, honor them and their families, and teach others about veterans and the wars they have fought. This event is organized by Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington.
