Maine’s First Lady – Ann LePage – to Visit Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday
The special convoy left Maine on Monday and should arrive in Virginia on Saturday, where volunteers alongside Maine’s governor and the first lady will lay down wreaths on the graves of fallen heroes.
LePage said that the reason why she thinks Wreaths Across America is important is because of the message its spread.
‘Remember the fallen, honor those who serve and their families, and teach our children the value of freedom,’ LePage said.
During the one week voyage, the caravan will make several stops along the way including a stop at the U.S. Naval Academy.
At the Arlington National Cemetery wreaths will be laid also on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the grave of President Kennedy, the USS Maine Mast and memorials for World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
