Wreaths Across America
Last year, my husband had the privilege to go to Washington, D.C., with his job to take part in Wreaths Across America. He passed out wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery, and placed wreaths on different war and law enforcement memorials. I have to admit, that I was a bit jealous that he went and I didn’t. I am happy to say that this year; I am able to go with him! I will definitely tell you all about it when we return.
