AAR: PGR Wreaths Across America Long Island National Cemetery 2009

It was a crisp, bright morning, a perfect day to lay wreaths in memory of our fallen heros.

And dozens turned out to do exactly that!

Families brought their children to take part, a hopeful sign for the future!

And with so many hands, both large and small, the wreaths were quickly laid!

Then it was on to the ceremony.

Harry Rathsam and the Bot Scouts of Troop 604 once again did an outstanding job of presenting the Wreath ceremony.

    What an amazing event. Your photos really bring it to life. Like you, I find this annual event to be among the most meaningful — and memorable — of the year. So glad you were able to participate. Great post.

    God bless you and yours. Wishing you a merry Christmas, and optimism for the new year.
