December 16th was National Wreaths Across America day.  Please consider taking a moment to visit their website to learn more about this valuable program. 

A neighbor attended the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery a year or two ago and came away deeply touched.  They joined others in our community to see that every veteran's grave was honored with a wreath.  Lonnie and Irene have worked hard to make this day at Green Cemetery such a success and other good pals Dennis and Lynn contributed so much as well.  We were proud to be a part of it.
Several piles of wreaths awaited us volunteers.
A very short introduction by the organizers was followed with a demonstration of how to place the wreaths.
They made a point to suggest we say the name of the veteran as we placed each one.  I'm only showing a few as an example of the large range of time periods of those resting here.

A view like this will surely provide pride and chills!
What an inspiring day.....we should all be so grateful to our military heros.

We often say that we would like to be a part of this, but we don't follow through. Maybe you will be the inspiration that spurs us to action. Thank you for your participation.

They just had this same ceremony in our town where my kids graduated from high school. My friend and her hubby volunteer'd this weekend. In fact, any time there is any ceremony for the veterans they are there! I think it's wonderful....
