HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -
Turning to Henrico County, families and volunteers gather today to spread hundreds of Christmas wreaths across Seven Pines National Cemetery.
 
This is all thanks to Wreaths Across America - a group that started laying wreaths at Arlington Cemetery.
 
One of today's Henrico organizers said the mission is to have families remember those who have served and who won't be able to be with their loved ones this holiday season.
 
"The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember, honor, and teach. Remember the fallen, honor those who served, and teach the children of America what freedom is all about", said Irene Peters.
 
Wreaths Across America has now spread to 900 cemeteries across America, as well as 24 international sites, and ceremonies on navy ships in all seven seas.
