Wreaths Across America Arlington

By Glenn Iannillo

Wreaths

My trip to D.C. was amazing. On December 16th Martine and I along with my sister Gi Gi and brother-in-law Dave, volunteered to go to Arlington National Cemetery to lay Christmas wreaths on the graves of the brave. Although it was below freezing 27* and it had its sad and emotional moments we had a fabulous time. This was my fifth time at Arlington Cemetery where my father Anthony and my uncle James are buried. This place never ceases to amaze me. 630 acres of headstones as far as the eye can see. 65 trucks of wreaths are placed by 15,000 volunteers over six hours.

If you get a chance visit Washington DC this is an event you would be honored to be a part of. And if you can’t make it to D.C. they have military cemetery
