Merry Christmas to the fallen

Merry Christmas Everyone
CHRISTMAS AT ARLINGTON CEMETERY
I wonder why the press hasn't enlightened the public about it??
Arlington National Cemetery
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...


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. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.

Sean participated in the wreath layings when he was in high school. The school has taken over the section where the fallen from Iraq & Afghanistan are resting. One of the grads was killed in action & is buried there. I have footage he shot of the ceremonies & it is a beautiful ceremony.

Unfortunately, the picture did not copy. I'll try another way.
