Wreaths Across America

Today my daughter and grandsons went to Seven Pines National Cemetery to place wreaths on the graves of servicemen from the Civil War to current day. It is not a very large cemetery. This was a great opportunity for the boys to Remember our family members who are no longer with us and Honor their memory. We talked about their great grandfathers, one who served in the Army and one who served in the Navy during World War II. The colors were posted, the pledge said, and after the speakers, there was a rifle salute, and taps. Among the groups that participated in the event to was the Children of the American Revolution. It was a lovely day.
