Wreaths Across America

This was a very nice ceremony yesterday. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday, its easy to forget about those who served our country, past and present. You may say wasn’t veteran’s day just a few weeks ago? Yes it was. What I liked most bout this organization is it encourages the youth to get involved. There were several boy and girl scouts there as well as children of those attended.

Each family/person was given two wreaths. They were asked to go out in the cemetery and find the grave site of a veteran. Then there were asked to clean it off, straighten the flag, and place the wreath. They were encouraged to say a few words thanking them for their service to the country. In many cases, they are the first visitors to the grave site in a year.
