**** MAJOR UPDATE 2 **** Well, I'm happy to announce the other exciting news that I can now let everybody know about. NBC Nightly News was in Maine last weekend doing a story on the Worcester family and Wreaths Across America for the upcoming weekend's events. The first part of their story will be about how this started, the family, etc Now, the second part of their story will finish up Long Island National Cemetery this weekend!!! Yes, NBC Nightly News will be at our ceremony taking both videos and pictures of our event to be included with what they filmed last weekend in Maine. So Long Island National Cemetery will be in the spotlight of the National Wreaths Across America Day for NBC Nightly News. This is for the national news which will be seen throughout the country. Not to be outdone, News12 has said that they will send down a crew to cover our event. That's the second major update I've got for everybody. It's nice to know that Long Island National Cemetery, one of the largest military cemeteries in the nation, will be the focal point of their story. Also, I met with the Director of the cemetery and some of the staff to finalize the details for Saturday's event which I'll be posting within the next day or two. Could there be another major update before Saturday?? Stay tuned to find out.
