Wreaths Across America

On December 15, volunteers—with the help of Wreaths Across America — lay wreaths to honor our nations Veterans.  Thousands of wreaths were placed on national cemeteries throughout the country.  

This is at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  It's amazing to see.  This was taken on Sunday by a friend of mine.  The new snow adds just the right touch.

We all need to take the time to thank our service members and their families.  Their dedication to home and country is amazing.

I did not know this! I live in Canada quite close to the American border. I pass a cemetary in Lynden Wa on my way to shop down in Bellingham.I am always impressed when the flags are laid out and how spotless and beautiful the cemmetary is.

I guess I never go down on the 15th of Dec or even after that as I am usually finished my shopping by then. This is such a fabulous picture and such a lovely gesture.

Is there a wall with names on it or something at that cemetery? My mom has tried several times to submit my dad's name up there (I thought she said for their wall) but so far they keep denying they received anything. Dad himself we... um "accidentally" dropped his ashes on a hill behind the space center in Alamogordo he so loved. Yes, it was an accident. We would never illegally scatter ashes. That'd be wrong. Love the photo and the frosty cemetery. Such a wonderful gesture.
