A Christmas tale of two cemeteries

Since 1992 volunteers have been placing evergreen wreaths with red bows at Arlington National Cemetery. Each year they are donated by Worchester Wreath Company of Harrington Maine. And each year the Arlington staff designates a new location. The sight of this somber effort during this happiest of seasons will no doubt evoke different feelings from each of us but it is an abiding reverence to those lost in the service to our country that I'll remember.
