Gone, but remembered forever.

On Saturday, we will decorate the graves of the decorated. Those resting at the Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery will witness an incredible turnout, all part of the annual Wreaths Across America.

The names the names of heroes chiseled into angels. Last year, 27 wreaths found homes on graves here.

As of Friday, word spread that 1700 wreaths were coming.

As of late Sunday night, 17,000 more were moving in.

A school trip by a wreath man from Maine turned this into a great event.

"It's just a good thing, right here," he said.

This Saturday, December 14 at noon wreaths will be laid on the graves of the country's fallen heroes.

The wreath truck from Maine is coming into town on Wednesday, with 250,000 going to Arlington, Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens has plenty, but at WMAR-2 News, we would like you to join us this weekend at Garrison Forest, because we have never seen so many wreaths at this cemetery.
