Arlington National Cemetery Christmas Tradition Continues

Arlington National Cemetery, Dec. 2011.

Volunteers placed 100,000 holiday wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetery this weekend. It’s the 20th year, “Wreaths Across America” has helped in the effort to make certain veterans’ graves at national cemeteries are adorned during the holidays with large, evergreen wreaths bearing bright red bows.

Veterans, family members, Boy Scouts and others helped place the wreaths on the headstones.
