Wreaths Across America honors veterans during the holidays

Tens of thousands of volunteers gathered at Arlington National Cemetery and more than a thousand other locations on Saturday, December 17th to lay wreaths on the headstones of fallen soldiers.

The "Wreaths Across America" event is an annual tradition at the cemetery.

More than 60 trucks came to Virginia carrying roughly 5,000 wreaths each.

The wreaths are sent from Harrington, Maine and travel as far as San Diego, CA.
