Thousands of volunteers have placed wreaths on veterans' grave sites across several sections of Arlington National Cemetery.
Some people traveled hundreds of miles Saturday to decorate the graves. For 19-year-old Pfc. De'Angello Robinson, it was a seven-hour trip to place a wreath on the grave of a soldier whom he'd never met.
Robinson was among a group of Marines who made the trip from Camp Johnson in North Carolina. Robinson says once his group ships out to war, "this could be us."
For 18 years, the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine, has been decorating grave sites at Arlington. Every year, Morrill Worcester and his wife Karen made the trip. They created a nonprofit called Wreaths Across America.
This year, volunteers placed 6,000 wreaths at Arlington.
