Vets Remembered With Holiday Wreaths


One of the most emotional stories that I have ever done was in December 2006 around Christmas, when I visited Arlington National Cemetery to highlight a program that donates wreaths for the tombs of those buried there.

Many of the people placing wreaths onto the tombs were school children, some of whom had studied the lives of those soldiers they were remembering that day, with a simple evergreen wreath.

This story really touched me, and I actually teared up on set when I was talking about it with Harry afterwards.
