FWD: Christmas at Arlington Cemetery – Christmas Leftovers

CHRISTMAS AT ARLINGTON CEMETERY

I wonder why the press hasn’t enlightened the public about it??  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 of the poorest parts of the state.

Please share this with everyone on your address list.  You hear too much about the bad things people do.  Everyone should hear about this.

Christmas at Arlington National Cemetery!

Christmas at 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…

Merry Christmas Everyone
