On 15 December 2007, Wreaths Across America will be conducting its annual wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetary. This is a request for all DCFReepers and members of the DC Chapter of Protest Warrior to join me in lending a hand.

This should be called, “Christmas Wreaths Across America”.

PC groups would love that.

I saw this last year and it ranks as one of the great things being done for our military.

Their Wreaths Across America Project web page is a must read.

So this can be done every year, support Worcester Wreath Company and check out their for sale items. After all, they are also a for-profit corporation.

Can't make it this year - D.C. Chapter obligations.

The Patriot Guard Riders are going to be at a number of national and veterans cemeteries for this. For you folks in Virginia, I know they are things happening at Culpeper, Richmond and Suffolk, possibly Staunton. I’m helping out with arrangements at Culpeper, in case anyone is interested in participating.

How I wish I could be there.

I have visited on Christmas day and it is beautiful. Does everyone know that the public can drive into the cemetery on Christmas Day? I have never had my pass checked...guards just wave to everyone.

Freepmail on the way.

Thank you Bob.. I have posted this on other sites & including it in my bi weekly mailing.

What is your involvement bob? are you an active participant or involved with the wreath company?

DC people, any chance of this being the event for Saturday & perhaps the chapter holiday get together that evening?

I am hoping to get to DC for this.

Thank you so much for this info!
Wish I could make it to Arlington, but that is unlikely. But thanks to your post I will definitely participate here in Northern California. Our State Capitol is only about an hour away.
This is an awesome project and deserves widespread support. Will also get the word out around here where possible.

I wonder what the ACLU would say to that.

It's a circtuituous involvement.
It involves:
a VDOT inspector in Lynchburg, VA; a Harley salesman in Richmond;
one of my Project Managers at work; and a church.
The Harley salesman and the VDOT inspector know each other;
my Project Manager attends the church and does not know either of them.

Karma...yeah..thats it..karma

We attended a local ceremony at Jefferson Barracks last year — I’ll have to check and see if it’s a go again here this year.
