Wreaths Across America...

 My mother and I spent last Saturday at Arlington National Cemetery taking part in the Wreaths Across America event. Over 200,000 wreaths were laid by volunteers, many of them were members of the families of the veterans. My maternal grandfather is interred there and my first wreath was placed on his grave. It was an emotional day for all...

Here are some photos of the convoy that traveled from Maine to Arlington... 
Rolling Thunder! 

My grandfather, he was an honorable man and a true hero.
Before the wreaths.

The changing of the guard and wreath laying at the
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier...

What an experience. All this is done at the hands of volunteers.
What a wonderful country we live in.
God Bless our Veterans.
