    Arlington Cemetery National Wreath Project - Wreaths Across America

    Each year Worcester Wreath Company (the wreath company that provides holiday greenery for L.L. Bean) makes and decorates holiday wreaths and places them on over 5,000 headstones at Arlington National Cemetery. Morrill Worcester - President of Worcester Wreath Company, based in Harrington, Maine, started this annual event in 1992 to honor our nation’s fallen heroes. The Arlington Wreath project, coordinated with the Cemetery Administration and the Maine State Society, adorns the white tombstones with evergreen wreaths and red bows to recognize sacrifices our Veterans and their families have made for our country

    I never tire of seeing this thread (at whatever site) every Christmas season.

    I've been to Arlington twice. I'd love to see it at Christmas time just once

    While on a tour of Arlington we were told by a guide that the Union Army, seeing Lee as a traitor for joining the Confederacy, dumped thousands of Union dead on the property - beginning it's role as a cemetery.
