Thousands turned out for the annual Wreaths Across America event held at the Arlington National Cemetery to honor fallen soldiers, despite the cold weather and rain.
The morning started off with an opening ceremony where the national anthem was sung and a prayer was said for the fallen soldiers and for those who lost loved ones.
People waited in long lines to be given a wreath to place on a veteran’s or loved one’s grave.
Over a thousand additional locations in all 50 states, and at sea and abroad, also participated, according to the the event’s organizers. (RELATED: While Most of D.C. Slept, Sec. Zinke Wandered A Frozen Arlington Cemetery With A Christmas Wreath)
