Thanks to Susan at www.asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com for hosting Outdoor Wednesday. I love reading all the participants posts!Last Saturday, my middle son participated in Wreaths Across America. This is conducted nationwide by the Civil Air Patrol. In the fall, the cadets sell wreaths to be placed on the graves of those who served our country in military service. The cadets started early, 7:00 a.m. on a chilly 25 degrees southern Saturday morning. They worked on placing the wreaths until the official ceremony began at 12:00. The ceremony lasted until around 1:30 p.m. Yes, those cadets were out in the cold from 7:00- 1:30 to honor those who served our country.
Below is my cadet. He absolutely loves CAP.
The ceremony was moving. All branches of the United States Armed Forces were represented. The ceremony reminded each of us not to take our freedoms lightly. Freedom is not freely given, it is hard fought for and must be valued as such.
