Wreaths Across America flew Gutcher from Jacksonville, Florida, to Arlington. It’s the first time Gutcher has been at the cemetery since her son’s burial.

On this day, as 90,000 new holiday wreaths are laid at Arlington, Gutcher cannot fathom that U.S. troops are pulling out of Iraq; that the war, at least for America, is at an end.

“I don’t know. It just doesn’t seem right,” she says, pausing to gather her thoughts.
She thinks the government could have ended the war earlier. “It’s the price we paid. He knew the costs.”

For the 20th year, Wreaths Across America is laying holiday wreaths on headstones at Arlington and in 500 other cemeteries throughout the United States and overseas.
