Stem to Stone: A Wreath’s Journey| 6min | Documentary Short | 2022 | USA
Director: Brian Burdett
Each December, volunteers lay 250,000 wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery, one on every veteran’s grave. The sight is breathtaking and iconic. Many of these wreaths are made from trees that bear the name of a fallen service member. The Remembrance Tree Program of Wreaths Across America is another way that loved ones can help create a living legacy for the fallen.
Come along for the poignant and patriotic trip, from a tree farm in Northern Maine to our nation’s capital. Witness this remarkable journey from stem to stone, through the eyes of trucker and Gold Star father J.D. Walker.
