from U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Media Activity
Thousands gathered at Arlington National Cemetery to lay remembrance wreaths on veterans' headstones to mark National Wreaths Across America Day, and in doing so drew one of the annual event's largest turnouts in its 23 year history. The organization has expanded to include more than 1,000 fundraising groups in all 50 states representing more than 900 cemeteries, military memorials, and other sites. Volunteers from local American Legion and VFW Posts, veterans and military service organizations, civic organizations, and more than 80 volunteer trucking companies participate each year.
