Wreaths Across America

I will continue to thank this organization (Wreaths Across America) and now support them with a donation in their 2017 efforts. I appreciate the work they do at many military cemeteries across the country and here at Arlington. Some of their handy work below at the USS Serpens Monument.

Sorry about the somber start to a Monday. I just didn’t want to forget a mention of this organization and do my part to see it continue. Like I said I’m on a mission to do more for others this coming year.

Thank you Wreaths Across America

I go to Arlington National Cemetery periodically to visit my parents. I find it an awesome place that moves me in many ways. Of course the first way it moves me each visit is sadness. I miss my parents and the support they gave me. But as I talk with them I always find comfort and feel better for visiting. Again on my holiday visit this year there was a wreath at their headstone.

The organization Wreaths Across America had been gracious enough to lay one there again. It makes a honored and hollowed place more beautiful for a few weeks a year than it already is.

I’ve been doing a couple of photographic projects over there during my visits that I’ll be showing later this year. But here are just a few with the wreaths they bring each winter for you to enjoy.

May all who rest here, rest in peace.
