"We are able to place a wreath at every single veteran's grave at Arlington National Cemetery this year", Bre Kingsbury, of Wreaths Across America, told "Fox & Friends". "They know the value of remembering the fallen, honoring those who now serve and teaching the next generation about the sacrifices made for our freedom every day, and without their continued support, Wreaths Across America would not exist".
The public is invited to attend and participate in the event. Preference will be given to honoring veterans and their surviving loved ones.
The Kent-Forest ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Honoring fallen veterans with 'Wreaths Across America'
Every grave at Arlington National Cemetery will be covered. And that year, December 13, 2008 was unanimously voted by the US Congress as "Wreaths Across America Day". Since then, the wreath ceremony has spread to many additional locations across the country, and in 2010 Wreaths Across America's network laid over 220,000 memorial wreaths at 545 locations. Over 100,000 wreaths were placed on veterans' graves.
In 2014, Wreaths Across America and its national network of volunteers laid over 700,000 memorial wreaths at 1,000 locations in the United States and beyond, including ceremonies at the Pearl Harbor Memorial, as well as Bunker Hill, Valley Forge and the sites of the September 11 tragedies.
Six wreaths recognized veterans in each branch of military service, one wreath honored Fishburne alumni veterans and one wreath remembered those servicemen and women whose last known status was wither prisoner of war or missing in action. The local event is held in coordination with more than 750 veterans cemeteries across the country.
