Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell.
Each Christmas since 1992, the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine has donated some 5,000 wreaths to the Arlington National Cemetery. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. A wonderful guy!
Most years, groups of Maine school kids have combined an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.
