The Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT) will be helping Arlington National Cemetery to remember and honor our Veterans by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes on December 19th, 2020 at Arlington National Cemetery.
These wreaths are not free by any means and the SFCT is stepping in to help to ensure all veterans have a wreath. You can help them by sponsoring a wreath here. Their goal, which they are approaching, is to sponsor 2,000 wreaths.
Most do not know that Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place of over 400,000 men and women. An average of 25 burials are performed each day. Each year for Memorial Day, a flag is placed by every tombstone, monument, and columbarium row in the cemetery. In the holiday season, volunteers continue this practice by placing wreaths instead of flags.
U.S. presidents buried at Arlington National Cemetery include John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft.
