The 26th year of the tour will end in Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday where thousands of Maine-made wreaths will be placed on the graves of our fallen heroes.

Samantha York and Zach Blanchard spent a day before the trip learning what it takes to make the wreaths. There is a lot involved in the process and they are all made by hand. There are crews of workers that are out 'tipping', or cutting the limbs of the trees, that then get trucked to the wreath factory. Once there, the limbs are sent down shoots where employees then gather them and clamp them to the wreaths frame. Once they are completed they are given a bow and shipped off to the trucks for Arlington National Cemetery.
