Via Daily Caller:
The National Wreaths Across America Day event at Arlington National Cemetery attracted thousands on Saturday.
Veterans and visitors alike attended, and the event honored Col. Roger Donlon, the first Medal of Honor Recipient on the Vietnam War. Col. Donlon spoke to a large crowd at the opening of the event and focused on his wife Norma, saying even though he returned home, Norma made his heart “a prisoner of war.”
