I thought you might want to see this. No better way to wish all of you a Merry Christmas. What a beautiful sight. The final resting place for all those who died protecting our freedom - S.L.
Once again Merrill Worcester has done his thing to honor our fallen at Arlington Cemetery. We should never forget our heroes, but especially at Christmas. We have all been touched in some way however small by their sacrifices.
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.
For maximum distribution. Why isn't this in the press or on the evening news?
