This past Saturday, Joseph and I helped to lay thousands of wreaths on a portion of the 93,000 graves at the Fort Sam Houston Cemetary. We were volunteering for Wreaths Across America where simoultanously hundreds of thousands of volunteers at cemetaries all over the country were placing donated wreaths on the graves of veterans, and those who gave their lives serving our country. They do this every year, and there is probably a location near you. I cannot tell you how moving this experience was, walking amongst the thousands of white gravestones, remembering the wars and battles of the past, and understanding just how much these people and their families sacrificed. If you are unable to physically help place wreaths, you can also contribute wreaths for the cause.
Check them out in November 2011 if you are interested!
