Wreaths across America, Dec 13, 2008

Scout Troop 604, veterans, families, Patriot Guard Riders and Gathering of Eagles all remember the fallen at the National Cemetery at Farmingdale, NY on December 13, 2008

On this day, December 13, 2008, thousands of wreaths were laid on the graves of veterans at cemeteries across the entire United States.
