Wreaths Across America

Downey-Weaver Post 34 - Charlestown, RI

On December 7 2010 at PONAGANSET Middle School a convoy of semi-trucks heading for Arlington National Cemetery stopped at the middle school for a short ceramony. Students of the school put out hundreds of flags along the truck route, invited different veterans groups, read short speeches about what being a veteran means, sang patriotic songs, played military music, including each service song. I had the honor of filming this event for Public TV. I have one hour of TV time each Wednesday at 6:00pm on PEG TV called the American Legion Hour. I was helped by Bill Fortier, Commander of Post 101, Foster Memorial in Foster, Rhode Island. Thank You students for putting on such a wonderful program.
