Wreaths Across America meets ambitious goal for Arlington National Cemetery gravesites

Wreaths Across America meets ambitious goal for Arlington National Cemetery gravesites

Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that teaches about the service and sacrifice of our nation's veterans.

After the ceremony, volunteers will meet at the Nebraska Veterans Memorial Cemetery to unload more than 1,500 wreaths that were donated through a fundraiser coordinated by Mandee Lade from Grand Island Express.

In Waynesboro, Fishburne Military School honored veterans on Tuesday during their Wreaths Across America ceremony. To date, millions of wreaths have been laid at the gravesites of thousands of veterans across America by more than one million volunteers.

In addition to the program in Boulder City, there is one at 9 a.m.in Fernley at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

But some other villains have other plans, which may or may not include the villain Carnage as the film's true antagonist. It's believed that the superb Riz Ahmed ( The Night Of , Rogue One ) is playing Carnage's host, Cletus Kasady.

The annual tribute went on quietly for several years, until 2005, when a photo of the stones at Arlington, adorned with wreaths and covered in snow, circulated around the internet. In 2006, with the help of the Civil Air Patrol and other civic organizations, simultaneous wreath-laying ceremonies were held at over 150 locations around the country.

The escort, made up of tractor trailers, public safety officials, local media and WAA supporters, makes dozens of stops along the way at community events, support rallies and school assemblies. Not all of the graves will get a wreath, but someday that is the goal.

Rolling Thunder, a veterans advocacy group, will lead the event at the veterans section of the cemetery.

Fallen veterans will be honored Saturday as part of the Wreaths Across America project to honor those who served our county and teach children the value of freedom.
