Thousands of volunteers gathered in national cemeteries over the weekend. Their mission to decorate the grave of every fallen hero with a Christmas wreath.
3,400 cemeteries in all 50 states.
It was Wreaths Across America Day – a tradition started in 1992 by the owner of Worcester Wreath Company in Maine.
Among the volunteers at Arlington National Cemetery was Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
He swapped his judicial robes for a knit cap and sunglasses — and was seen quietly going from row to row honoring the fallen.
“Love how Justice Clarence Thomas quietly lays wreaths with all the other volunteers every year at Arlington National Cemetery,” wrote journalist Emily Miller.
It turns out Justice Thomas has been volunteering for years at the cemetery— toiling quietly where the heroes lay.
They say your character is who you are when you think no one is watching.
By that measure, Justice Thomas is a great man and a great patriot.
