Saturday, December 16th is National Wreaths Across America Day, a day to remember and honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty. Every December, memorials are held across the nation and wreaths are laid on veterans' graves.
The idea behind the memorial is simple: every time a wreath is laid, the veteran's name is read off. Every time their name is said, their memory lives on.
People across the nation took to social media to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Over 14,000 veterans were honored at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.
Others across the nation joined in this touching event.
This is one event that everyone can agree on. It doesn't matter what political party you belong to, what race you are or what religion you practice. At this moment in time, you are an American, united by your love of your country.
It takes a brave soul to write a blank check for their nation.
Every generation should be thankful to those who put on that uniform and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
