In 2014, Patrick traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to host a special episode of Taking The Hill one dedicated to the story and national ethos of Wreaths Across America, a Maine-based nonprofit that has honored veterans’ memory across the country since 1992.

In this clip, Wreaths Across America founder Morrill Worcester describes the events that led to WAA’s creation, and why the laying of wreaths matters to him and his family.


Listen to Karen Worcester, wife of Morrill and Executive Director of Wreaths Across America, describe the vital human connection at the core of what they do.


Watch the entire special below to hear more about the Worcester family’s efforts, where they struck a national nerve, and how companies, individuals, and charities all banded together to help honor our veterans.
