Remember. Honor. Teach.

Remember. Honor. Teach.

It’s the holidays, Thanksgiving is a couple weeks away, then Christmas shopping begins, and before you know it, a mere four weeks later, we’re in our jammies around the Christmas tree checking out what Santa brought, sipping on hot coffee and taking photos of the events before us.

But let’s back up a bit. Let’s remember who has made all of this possible. It’s our veterans. Those who are still serving, those who have served, and those who have fallen. We want to pay particular attention here, to those who are no longer with us. That’s why we celebrate them with Wreaths Across America.

The event was “quiet” until a photo of the Memorials at Arlington adorned with the wreaths, covered with snow was shown on the internet. It began with Morrill Worcester, owner of Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, ME. He was 12 years old when he won a trip to Washington, D.C., and Arlington Cemetery made an impression on him. Throughout his life, and successful career, he was reminded that his good fortune was due, in large part, to the values of this nation and the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
