This definitely falls into the category of “What were you thinking?!”
Army officials canceled the annual wreath-laying event where volunteers across the country lay wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers, including at Arlington Cemetery. They cited concerns over the spread of COVID-19 as the reason for the cancellation, but when the news hit, people around the country were outraged.
How could the Army cancel such a solemn event that is by definition held outside and can be done both safely and respectfully?
That’s great, but what knucklehead made such a decision in the first place?
