     This man has wonderfully given of himself, his family and his business, to do this amazing
thing for the real heroes of this Country.  He does this from his heart ..........and yet Our government wants to give Billions of dollars out in Bail-out money to Greed Mongering Bankers so they can fill their pockets with Bonus Money, for doing absolutely NOTHING for the American People.   If Anyone deserves a helping hand financially, it would be this kind gentleman, and he damn sure shouldn't have to ask for it, (not that he ever would).

   It is a travesty that this lone businessman, and a handful of children from Maine, can perform this singular event every year since 1992, which has true value and meaning, yet Congress and the Banking Cartels can only think of getting their hands on the taxpayers money in these desperate times.

      Maybe Obama, Congress, The House of Non-Representation and these Bankers, Need to get their asses out there, unload those trucks and place all 5000 of these wreaths themselves.  Then maybe, ............just maybe they could understand what it is and means to be a true American and to look out for one another.

Mr. Worcester and these children are True American Patriots and Citizens and deserve our Humble Appreciation for what they so Unselfishly do for our Fallen Soldiers.     Bless all of you.

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.

Know the line has held, your job is done.

Rest easy, sleep well.

Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.

Peace, peace, and farewell.






















An Amazing Sight


Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine .  The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well.  He's done this since 1992. 

A wonderful guy.  Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out in unloading and placing the wreaths.  Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.


Please share this with everyone on your address list. You hear too much about the bad things people do.  Everyone should hear about this.

     God Bless this man and these children for doing what they do for those men and women who gave their lives to try to keep America free. If our government can only do as much.

I will never understand the abuse our active military and veterans suffer at the hands of our government. The poisons that are injected into their systems on induction, the chemicals sprayed into the air during Viet Nam and now, the lack of safe water for them in Iraq by the company that is suppose to supply it. (Haliburton or something like that)

Unfortunately, many of your young military now days are ignorant (not stupid, just naive) of what the military is doing and the fact that they are being used. The secret government is funding both sides of each war as they stand to make money from all of it and keep everyone divided. They use our patriotic love for our country against us, but because of our patriotic love for this country, we will still fight.
We must fight here in America however and not abroad. We must fight the government from starting these undeclared wars and from taking away our rights and freedoms and trampling on our constitution.

My wonderful, patriotic brother, who served in the Viet Nam era, 101st Air Borne, Screaming Eagles, who passed away in August 2008, would be absolutely devastated to learn the things that are coming out and what is happening now with and concerning our military.

I can't remember where I was flying to or from, but it was since 2008, I had the great honor of meeting one young man, who was on a very rare break after 3 years, of steadily guarding the tomb of the unknown soldier. My brother would have loved to hear about him. Just talking to him and hearing the patriotism in his voice brought tear of pride to my eyes and my own patriotism to the forefront.

God Bless our military. They are always in my heart.
