Wreath Laying at the Old Soldier’s Home by Kalia

“So my company Alion Science and Technology donated wreaths this year to 4 of the major national cemeteries this year. They sent some to Arlington, Alexandria, Annapolis, and DC. It was all volunteer and unlike Arlington, this was the first year for the DC cemetery to lay wreaths for the winter season. This year they donated 100 wreaths to the DC cemetery because they weren’t sure what the turnout would be. 8 of us laid 100 wreaths on the markers on either side of the flagpole on Sat, Dec 12, 2009 at 2pm. Hopefully next year we will be able to get more volunteers and more wreaths!”


I’ll definitely participate and help publicize next year!
