Morrill Worcester is the owner of Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine.
In 1992, Worcester Wreath found themselves with a surplus of wreaths nearing the end of the holiday season. Worcester made arrangements for the wreaths to be placed at Arlington in one of the older sections of the cemetery.
The first year, 5,000 wreaths were placed at graves. Since then, Wreaths Across America has continued to grow. This year 100,000 wreaths will be placed at Arlington.
