Wreaths Across America: Remembering America's war heroes

With Veterans Day past us, many will fail to remember the sacrifices of our nation's military heroes until the pre-Memorial Day cemetery cleanups begin next spring. One organization is trying to change that. Wreaths Across America calls for the placing of holiday wreaths at the graves of America's fallen. An article in the New Milford Times, in Connecticut, provides some insight into this holiday memorial. In part, it says:

In December 2007, 286 participating locations hosted Wreaths Across America
ceremonies overseeing the placement of 32,553 wreaths on the headstones of those
who served and sacrificed for our freedoms.
