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?
Apparently, there wasn’t a good answer, and after a deluge of messages, including from Senator Tom Cotton and Representative Dan Crenshaw, the Army reversed course.
That’s great, but what knucklehead made such a decision in the first place?
