Wreaths Across America honored America’s fallen soldiers in a wreath-laying ceremony on Saturday.
More than 100 people laid 250,000 wreaths on the graves of soldiers laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery and so many more across the country.
“When my husband was in the Navy, when he was in Vietnam, it was not a big thing when they came home, people weren’t happy about it that they were in Vietnam,” said Belle Berman, a retired veteran, to Wink News. “So it’s nice to know they’re not forgotten. It’s just very special.”
“Never again will one generation of veterans be left behind,” said Stuart Berman, also a retired veteran.
“We usually have one or two that are from World War II. Which they’re in their 90s,” Stuart said. “And still come out here in their wheelchairs or walkers just to come out and be here.”
“To me, a lot of people here sacrificed and to see them honored like this,” Baum said. “It means a lot.”
