It was a busy day at Arlington National Cemetery.

(ARLINGTON) - There was a total of 143,000 wreaths place in Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday, December 14, 2013. This is Section 60 and it took almost two hours to place the hand made wreaths from the Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine.

Their mission is to Remember, Honor, Teach.

They receive no government funding.

The cost of our programs are paid by individual wreaths sponsors, corporate donors and volunteer truckers.

We also coordinate veteran services and recognition through a variety of programs, and provide schools with teaching aides for projects throughout the year. http://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/a...

Volunteers were asked not to place a wreath at headstones that have the 'Star of David'.

This is my first time lapse video, so please let me know what you think?
