Arlington  at Christmas

I thought you might want  to see it. 

 Christmas at Arlington Cemetery

Rest  easy, sleep well my  brothers.


Know  the line has held, your job is  done.


Rest  easy, sleep  well.


Others  have taken up where you fell, the line has  held.


Peace,  peace, and  farewell...



Readers  may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some  5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. Of  Harrington , Maine . The owner, Merrill Worcester,  not only provides the wreaths, but covers the  trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992.  A wonderful guy. Also, most years, groups of Maine  school kids combine an educational trip to DC with  this event to help out. Making this even more  remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the  poorest parts of the  state.

 

 

My best friends son died in Iraq this past October.  He left four small children and a beautiful wife of only 10 years.  He was a hero and he is greatly missed.  Freedom isn't free, we all have to pay, some more than others are willing to do so.
