Many decades after his visit to Arlington National Cemetary as a young boy,  a Maine Resident, Morrill Worcester started a movement, which he hopes will continue beyond his lifetime. Wreaths across America, the act of placing memorial decorations on graves of soldiers went unnoticed for ten years. It is finally getting recognition  and has spread beyond the cemetary at Arlington to other burial grounds where soldiers lie across the nation. Without the help of thousands of volunteers a project of this magnitude would not be possible.

The mission is to “Remember, Honor and Teach.” Although the wreaths are placed on tombs during the holidays, the project has grown so much, it takes year round effort to keep it going and growing.
