Thank you for sharing this photo. When we see so many graves of young men and women who paid with their lives so the rest of us can be free, it's just so sad. Why do we have to have war?

Very impressive. Are Advent wreaths laid on all Servicemen's graves across America? It's a lovely thing to do and reminds us all of our debt to our respective Servicemen. "At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them"

Thanks for looking, and taking the time to comment, Lori, Elaine, Jola, Randall, and Jim. It is so important to take time from the now, to remember those who were there when we needed them.

Thank you Ron, for your service to keep us all safe. I, too, thank the Worcester Company, from Harrington, Maine, who makes, and distributes these wreaths all across America. It's not too far from our shared hometown of Waldoboro.
