Convoy of wreaths depart for Arlington National Cemetery.

COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine – A convoy of a dozen trucks is carrying wreaths from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery to adorn the graves of fallen U.S. military personnel. MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — Volunteers in Gloucester County, New Jersey remembered fallen veterans Saturday morning by decorating their grave sites as part of the “Wreaths to Remember” program. “We really appreciate all of the sacrifices that not only our veterans have made, but their families have made for us,” Blackstone said. “We here in America really do appreciate our veterans.” Wreaths Across America says a box truck and 11 donated tractor-trailers are on their way from Columbia Falls with the bulk of the 248,000 wreaths that’ll be left at gravesites in Arlington. Slaven says at that first event, Morrel Worcester asked that volunteers say the person’s name out loud as they place the wreath on a grave to ensure that their memory lives on.
