LOOK: Wreaths Across America Celebrates 25 Years of Honoring Vets
"Wreaths Across America" celebrated its 25th anniversary on Saturday, during its annual wreath-laying event in Virginia.
The Maine-based organization enlisted thousands of volunteers to canvass Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the graves of each and every soldier who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

The group honors veterans nationwide during the holidays, but the event outside Washington may be its most visible.
WTOP reported this year's official opening ceremony was canceled due to icy weather.
In 2015, 70,000 people helped with the solemn event at the national cemetery.
