This is probably making the rounds on the internet, but I thought it was worth displaying here.
The wreaths on the graves at Arlington National Cemetary, some 5,000 of them, are donated by the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, ME. Morill Worcester, the owner, donates the wreaths and covers the trucking expenses. He and a cadre of volunteers place the wreaths on the graves themselves every year. He’s been doing it since 1992.
Worcester began Wreaths Across America in 2006 to duplicate his efforts at every national and state cemetery where American war veterans are buried. If you would like to participate with or donate to their efforts, visit their web site at http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.

Nice story here. Thanks for sharing, I plan to pass this on to my son.
Would love to drive my son and a few of his Boy Scout friends down for the day to help with the wreaths.
