As the daughter, granddaughter and niece of men who bravely served this great country, I participated in the fine tradition of Wreaths Across America on Dec. 16 at Arlington National Cemetery. Thousands of proud Americans, including children and the elderly, placed beautiful Christmas wreaths at gravesites and said aloud the names of those who gave of themselves for our freedom.

It was a perfect day filled with patriotism and respect. Imagine my surprise on reading The Post and finding no mention of this tradition at Arlington but only a photograph of wreaths being placed in Erie, Pa. [Digest, Dec. 17]. Our brave men and women of the armed forces deserved more.
