Xmas at Arlington

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...

Every December since 1992, volunteers have laid holiday wreaths donated by the  Worcester Wreath Company  of Harrington, Maine, at the headstones of over 5,000 of America's honored dead.

In 2006, the project was expanded into  Wreaths Across America  

In 2009, volunteers placed over 16,000 wreaths at Arlington and other memorial sites across America.
