I found this in an email, then checked it out on Snopes…true story. Beautiful but kinda tear-jerky. This is at the Arlington National Cemetery. Check out the link if you want to read more.
“Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths — some 5,000 — are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington , Maine . The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He’s done this since 1992. A wonderful guy. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out.”
