On December 15th, the C3 Team joined over 50,000 Americans as they came together to participate in Wreaths Across America, a volunteer effort which lays wreaths on thousands of veteran’s graves at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations across the country.
The weather was not pleasant…and although a steady and soaking downpour stayed with us all day, it was a poignant reminder of the even greater hardships our Veterans have withstood. Thousands of green wreaths adorned with red bows placed against rows and rows of simple white gravestones was a remarkable and moving symbol of those that gave all in service to our country.
Following the wreath laying, the C3 team warmed up at a holiday brunch – and enjoyed a beverage or two – with our families and friends. The day’s activities were a wonderful way to support Wreaths Across America’s mission to “remember the fallen, honor those that serve, and teach the next generation about the value of freedom” and to spend some quality time with the C3 team and our families.
