On Saturday December 17, 1.2 million remembrance wreaths were placed on veterans' graves in 1228 national cemeteries across the country.

The Wreaths Across America program started 25 years ago when 5000 wreaths were placed at the Arlington National Cemetery.

After a brief ceremony, 1350 wreaths were placed on veterans' graves at Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park in North Seattle.
