Honoring veterans with Wreaths Across America

WASHINGTON, D.C. On an unseasonably warm December Friday in our nation's capital, an annual caravan intended to remember our country's military veterans concluded its week-long journey

Wreaths Across America, the organization that executed this many-stopped trip from Harrington, Maine to Arlington, Virginia, was first born as an idea in 1992. Morrill Worcester, owner of Worcester Wreath Company, decided that the best way to deal with his season-ending surplus of wreaths was an opportunity to pay tribute to military veterans. Arrangements were made for those wreaths to be placed in one of the older sections of Arlington National Cemetery. With help from a number of businesses and individual volunteers, the tradition carried forward for years.
